Mikkel Hansen out of action until the end of the season

The Danish international, who last week suffered a phlebitis exacerbated by a pulmonary embolism in the immediate aftermath of his operation, is now out of danger but will not be able to play with the capital club again until the end of the season.  

Mikkel Hansen underwent surgery last Monday in Denmark to treat a cartilage problem in his right knee, which he had suffered from for several weeks. The player and the Club had decided to schedule a surgical intervention to clean out the joint, and the duration of his unavailability was estimated at between four and six weeks.

The Rouge et Bleu left-back returned to Paris last week to carry out, as planned, his rehabilitation at the capital club, but contracted a phlebitis of the lower leg, exacerbated by a pulmonary embolism, when he returned to France.

Currently under the care of the medical staff of Paris Saint-Germain, Mikkel Hansen is now out of danger but will still have to follow a treatment based on anticoagulants for a period of four to six months.

As this treatment is not compatible with the playing of a high-level contact sport, the Parisian number 24 will not be able to resume competition this season. He will carry out his rehabilitation at the Club's facilities.

Paris Saint-Germain supports Mikki during this long period of convalescence.
