how to protect chronic MCL damage

Question: how to protect chronic MCL damage

I have had a scan on my right knee which revealed chronic MCL damage.

At first the injury prevented me from running at all, but i found that reducing by bodyweight by 23 lbs, i am now able to run as far and as long as i like. The problem however, is in sudden turns and explosions in pace. I am hoping to continue playing soccer without having an operation.

I train in a gym 3 times a week, but i would like to know the most effective knee support i can buy in order to protect it during football.

I have tried various cheap ones, but they are not specifically designed for this severity of injury.
