Athletic de Bilbao starlet Iker Muniain took to Instagram to react to his ACL injury, which will keep him out of action for around half a year.
"Unfortunately the bad news has been confirmed. I'll be unable to do what I love, playing football, for several months. It's a very tough blow but I'm ready to fight against the injury so that I make a good recovery. And let's not forget for a second that there are worse things in life than a knee injury".
The playmaker voiced his gratitude to everyone who has rallied round him since he sustained the injury.
"I'd also like to thank everyone who has sent me messages of support: thanks a million. I'm sad about the injury, but happy to see that there are people who are there for me, sending me their support and making me feel strong. I will be back and will roar again like in the photo, if not even louder", the 'Los Leones' favourite posted alongside a picture of himself celebrating a goal, his mouth wide open.
