In addition to the controversial decisions of the referee during the meeting between Valencia FC and Real Madrid, another event marked the meeting. At the end of the match, all the Mestalla supporters held their breath when Aurélien Tchouameni collided with Mouctar Diakhaby in the area.

The defender of Blanquinegros was directly taken out on a stretcher, ending his game (89th). After the match, the French midfielder was quick to send a message of support to his opponent on his social networks.

Same story for Vinicius Junior and Luka Modric who supported the 27-year-old defender. This Sunday, the news is not necessarily good regarding the state of health of the Guinean.

According to information from the newspaper l’Équipe, Mouctar Diakhaby suffers from a dislocation of his right knee and could be away from the field for a year. A real blow for the Spanish club which loses one of its best elements for a very long time.

Complicated season for Diakhaby

The 2023/2024 financial year is very complicated for Mouctar Diakhaby. Already injured at the start of the season, the Guinean will once again be away from the field for the next few months. Performing during the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations with Guinea, the former Olympique Lyonnais returned to a very good level. This injury will slow down his progress. This season, he had played no less than 14 matches with the club Che.
