ISTANBUL (AA) - Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim announced Sunday that goalkeeper Fernando Muslera will return to playing.
In a postgame interview with beIN Sports Turkey, Terim said Muslera would make an appearance in next week's Super Lig match against Yukatel Denizlispor.
In June last year, the 34-year-old goalie collided with Caykur Rizespor's Czech forward Milan Skoda during a league match.
He sustained a tibula and fibula (tib-fib) fracture and immediately underwent surgery.
Muslera, an integral part of Galatasaray and a fan favorite, joined the Istanbul club in the summer of 2011.
He made 361 appearances for his club and has been a five-time Turkish champion with Galatasaray (2012, 2013, 2015, 2018 and 2019).
Muslera has also represented his native Uruguay 116 times since 2009.
