Alex Pledger Sidelined for Melbourne

This article originally appeared on melbourneutd.com.au


Melbourne United centre Alex Pledger has undergone surgery on Monday to repair a right ankle injury.


Pledger has been dealing with a right ankle impingement which limits his flexibility and power when pushing off his right leg.


A recent MRI showed a bone spur that could only be resolved with surgery, and as a result, Pledger underwent surgery on his right ankle today.


The Club’s medical and training staff have been diligent in managing Pledger’s workload over the past couple of weeks, helping Pledger prepare for games while having to sit out trainings throughout the week.


The Club anticipates a 6-8 week recovery from surgery, with the aim to have him back playing in early January.
