‘Work With Happiness & Joy’ – Ricardo’s Long Road Back

There’s a week to go until the new Premier League season, it’s last July, and Ricardo Pereira is lying down in the centre-circle at King Power Stadium. The jovial pre-season mood around Filbert Way has dimmed.

The Foxes have had harder luck than most in regard to injuries over recent seasons – and Ricardo in particular has taken the brunt of that. A famous night in Eindhoven just three months earlier had confirmed the Portuguese’s return to form after an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which was sustained before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the entire world. 

City’s No.21 had actually been able to play on after that ACL injury struck back in March 2020, but he’s on the deck in this pre-season friendly against FC Sevilla. Before long, Brendan Rodgers has to break the news to the supporters, via the media, that 'Ricky P' has injured his Achilles. He’ll be out for at least six months, but no there’s no guarantees. It could be longer.
