  1. I tore my ACL plus cartilage damage nearly 3 years ago which requires an operation. As stated above it takes longer to return than your pro footballers due to many reasons including them operating differently. A professional footballer tends to have a piece of their Patella (knee cap) inserted as a scaffold for the new ligament to grow which provides a quicker recovery but long term increases the chances of arthritis etc. Local non paid players tend to have a piece of their hamstring cut and used to scaffold the new ligament which has better long term advantages. From my experience your knee is never the same afterwards, I didn't play for 14months post op and would advise anyone who gets a similar injury to fully focus on the physio!
