PUTRAJAYA: Shuttler Goh Liu Ying’s future is in doubt and it could see an end to her successful mixed doubles partnership with Chan Peng Soon.
Liu Ying went for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan yesterday and the prognosis on her right knee was not good at all.
“The condition is quite bad. The meniscus tear is bigger than before. I have also developed a small tear on my left knee.
“This is an old injury. I have had it since 2008 but I have handled it for the last five years by going for treatment. But now, it has become quite unbearable. I find it painful even when I walk,” she said with tears welling in her eyes.
Liu Ying said that she had two options.
She could either go for a minor surgery that will rule her out of the game for four months or go for a major one, which will see her out of action from six to eight months.
“I will seek advice from the NSI (National Sports Institute) and see how best to deal with this issue.”
When asked about her future with Peng Soon, she was not non-committal.
