Valencia: the terrible duration of absence of Mouctar Diakhaby


By: Manu Tournoux

The Mestalla Stadium was the setting for a dramatic film. If Valencia and Real Madrid neutralized each other (2-2), the refereeing caused discussion at the end of the match and led to the expulsion of Jude Bellingham. In addition to this scandal which revolted all of Spain, central defender Mouctar Diakhaby (27 years old) seriously injured his leg and the Ché club announced that the ex-Lyonnais *”had been the victim of a dislocation of the right knee. The Valencian central defender remained in hospital for a clinical check-up and is awaiting further examinations.

Nothing reassuring, then. The Team also specifies that it is a complete dislocation of the knee joint, generally leading to the rupture of two to four ligaments, with a leg which finds itself dislocated from the thigh. The 27-year-old Guinean defender could be unavailable for up to a year, according to initial medical advice. Even if the contact was involuntary, Aurélien Tchouaméni apologized and wished him a good recovery.
