FCK TV have followed F.C. Copenhagen defender Erik Johansson since he suffered a serious knee injury back in August 2017.
FCK drew 1-1 with AC Horsens in a game few will remember apart from Johansson's injury. His anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee was completely torn.
Only three days later he went through surgery – in Telia Parken – and for the first time, at least in Denmark, FCK TV documented the whole process before, during and after the surgery.
Since then we have covered his solo struggle to get back to fitness. From his first visit to the training ground a few days after the operation, to the special anti-gravity training during the autumn. In December we followed him on a week’s intensive rehabilitation in Los Angeles, and in January on the training camp in Dubai with F.C. Copenhagen.
In February, Erik began to train with the team, and he played his first minutes with the reserves in March. And finally… his comeback in the first team against in April.
In this documentary series you can go behind the scenes and watch how a player returns - both physically and mentally - from such a bad injury. The documentary is presented in cooperation with Palæo.
