League: End of career for Mouctar Diakhaby?

Former OL defender Mouctar Diakhaby took the full weight of Aurélien Tchouaméni on his knee and was seriously injured. The predictions are clearly not good for the future.

Horrible injury to Mouctar Diakhaby, who suffered a serious knee injury during a hard contact with Aurélien Tchouaméni during the La Liga match between Valencia and Real Madrid. Leaving the pitch with great concern, the centre-back first sent a reassuring message about his general health. But now the focus is on his knee and if the doctors don't want to say too much, the fears for the future are quite dire. The battle will be long, but I am ready and I will do everything to return to the field as soon as possible and even stronger, said the former player of Olympique Lyonnais, whose absence has already been announced for a year due to the very serious nature of the injury.

In fact, his knee dislocation also took away his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. “It is a very rare injury. It is the most serious knee injury a football player can have. He probably tore four or five ligaments. It's a crazy injury,” Dr. Enrique Gastaldi told Cadena SER's Valencia affiliate. The traumatologist believes that at this moment the story of the return to football is actually secondary. “With this type of injury, the first thing I have to look for is that the patient can walk and that there are no more problems… And we are not talking about a child younger than 9 or 12 months of age. 'interruption of work. With this type of injuries, injuries, it is not necessary to give deadlines. And the same thing requires one or two operations – said the expert, for whom the return of the Guinea national team member to football is currently uncertain until his knee and leg are stabilized. And this will require several interventions with no guarantee of a hundred percent return.
