Coach Gennady Sartynsky:
Oleg will likely have surgeries on his leg and shoulder in January.
He’ll probably miss the whole next season. He definitely won’t be able to train for half a year and then we’ll see how he’s getting back in shape.
He tore a ligament in his leg, this had bothered Oleg even before Rio, but it was tolerable. He’s torn his shoulder already this season and it needs to be repaired.
We’ve just done an MRI and realized that a surgery is inevitable. …
He wants to finish the Bundesliga season first.
