Southampton Football Club can regrettably confirm that Tino Livramento has suffered an ACL injury and is likely to be sidelined for the remainder of the year.
The 19-year-old full-back sustained the injury during the first half of Sunday’s Premier League visit to Brighton, with a subsequent scan on his left knee revealing the extent of the problem.
Livramento, who had been enjoying an impressive debut season following last summer’s move from Chelsea, making 32 appearances for the first-team, will now undergo surgery before beginning rehab.
Although there is no definitive timescale on his return, it is likely he will be unavailable for the remainder of 2022.
Everyone at the club sends their very best wishes to Tino and will be doing everything to support him throughout each step of his recovery.
