Recovery time for the torn meniscus is estimated at around two months, effectively ruling Courtois out for the remainder of the season. A decision on possible surgery to repair the meniscus will be made soon in consultation with the team doctors.

Despite this latest setback, reports indicate the injury is not career-threatening and Courtois is expected to be back in time for pre-season training.
