Geelong’s Daniel Menzel is weighing up his future after suffering from yet another ACL injury in a VFL match for the Cats on the weekend.

Scans on Monday confirmed the worst, a 4th ACL injury for the 21-year-old.

Menzel, drafted in 2009, has played just 21 matches for the Cats and now his future in the AFL is in serious doubt.

“Now the trick is we’ve all got to get our heads together and think about the future for Dan’s knee – what’s best for his knee,” Geelong physiotherapist Mike Snelling said.

“We’re going to go through every single possibility we can, leave no stone unturned.

“Hopefully by the end of the week, we’ve made some pretty clear decisions about what we’re going to do.”
