Nikola Karabatic during the Euro -


This is bad news for PSG and the French handball team.

Star Nikola Karabatic suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in his knee during the championship game against Ivry, his club confirmed Monday morning at a medical point.

"The French international will undergo surgery soon," the statement explains.

The duration of his unavailability is estimated at several months.


This injury generally includes a stoppage of all competitions between six and months, with a recovery phase always delicate.

This could endanger his participation in the next Olympic Games in July.

Barring a miracle, Karabatic will certainly miss the Olympic qualifying tournament, scheduled for March in Montpellier.
