Manomanista: Iker Arretxe to replace Aimar Olaizola

Asegarce today announced that Iker Arretxe will replace their injured star Aimar Olaizola for the remainder of the Manomanista tournament. Arretxe’s replacement in the Second Tier competition will be revealed tomorrow (Tuesday).

In other Asegarce-related news, Alexis Apraiz has extended his contract with the empresa until 31 August 2014 (source).

Aimar faces a seven month lay-off

As predicted, the injury suffered by Aimar Olaizola in his opening Manomanista match against Patxi Ruiz on Saturday is a serious one.

Top orthopaedic specialist Mikel Sanchez today confirmed what Aimar and his connections feared, with the diagnosis of the so called ‘terrible triad’, a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament coupled with damaged lateral meniscus. He will undergo surgery within the next three weeks before embarking on a recovery period which is expected to last around seven months.
