The centre-back’s injuries weren’t life-threatening but he still needed back surgery.

He is expected to be out for at least two months and was discharged from hospital on Sunday.

The day after the attack, Mari said on Instagram: “After the difficult time we had yesterday, my family and I want to communicate that fortunately we are all well despite the circumstances, and we want to thank all the messages from support and affection we receive.

“Furthermore, we want to send our condolences and all our strength to the family and friends of the deceased, and we sincerely wish that all those injured recover as quickly as possible.”
