As previously reported, FC Gifu central defender Tatsuya Arai suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury during training earlier this month, and he has undergone surgery to repair it.

The timetable for his recovery is estimated at around 6 months. If he needs advice on how to deal with an injury such as this he can confide in Taira Inoue & Yuki Kukaya, both of whom have suffered similar cruciate ligament injuries.

Get well soon Tatsuya!!
