Borussia Mönchengladbach loanee ruled out of action for the remainder of the season due to cruciate ligament injury



NEC Nijmegen have confirmed that Yvandro Borges Sanches will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his cruciate ligament in Tuesday’s clash with Fortuna Sittard.

Yvandro Borges Sanches was forced off in the 83rd minute of Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Fortuna.
