De Villiers focusing on full recovery after surgery
Springbok’s captain, Jean De Villiers, has undergone successful surgery on his kneecap, saying that he plans on focusing in getting back into shape for the Rugby World Cup next year.
De Villiers dislocated his left knee during the 12-6 loss against Wales, in South Africa’s last End of Year tour match last weekend.
Scans revealed that he had significant ligament damage in his knee and would have to undergo reconstructive surgery on the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and the medial collateral ligament needed repairing.
"I would like to thank every medical practitioner involved in my injury, from Saturday when it happened until today's operation," De Villiers said in a statement.
"My focus will now be on the arrival of our third child in the coming days. Thereafter it will be about recovering as soon as possible so I can start with my rehabilitation. I still have my sights set on going to next year's Rugby World Cup and will do everything in my power to get to England."
