Abstract(s)Football (soccer) is the most played sport worldwide, practiced by more than 300 million people [1]. It is a high-impact contact sport, and with the increasing competitive level, it often results in sports-related damage of the knee structures, including articular cartilage injuries [2â 4]. These articular cartilage injuries can also be caused by forceful and repetitive mechanical stresses on the knee joint during the football practice [5â 8]. When the cartilage damage reaches the subchondral bone, it often results in knee complaints [9], including pain, swelling, catching, and locking [3, 10, 11]. Nonetheless, articular cartilage injuries may be present in asymptomatic athletes which, if not treated properly, may lead to an early onset of knee osteoarthritis [12â 14].
