Melbourne’s Kemp to have knee surgery

Melbourne Victory defender, Matthew Kemp, today underwent an MRI scan to ascertain the damage done to his right knee after it buckled in the first minute of Melbourne Victory’s clash against North Queensland Fury on Friday night.

Unfortunately for Kemp and Melbourne Victory, the scan confirmed that he has ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which will require a knee reconstruction.

While the Victory don’t have a confirmed day, the club is keen to organise surgery as soon as possible. The only positive from the incident is that there was no other damage to the knee, and the club is confident he can make a full recovery and return in 9 months time.

In the interim, Kemp will be making no comment.
