Reine-Adelaide got out of the derby in Monaco on a stretcher -
Injured in the left knee at the last minute of the derby in Monaco (2-1), Wednesday evening, the Nice player Jeff Reine-Adelaide suffers "from a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee", announced the Gym on Thursday.
An injury that could take him away from the field for several months while OGC Nice is stuck in a major crisis.
The verdict, already feared in the evening, was confirmed following medical examinations.
"I'm a little worried," coach Adrian Ursea explained on Wednesday evening.
I hope it won't be too serious, even if the first signs are not very encouraging.
Loaned by Lyon with purchase option
Reine-Adelaide, loaned by Lyon to Nice, with a purchase option of 25 million euros, collapsed following an aerial duel with Monegasque Caio Henrique.
"As of Friday, the player will go to Lyon, where he had been operated on on his right knee in 2019 [following a similar injury in a match against Rennes], for a meeting prior to a surgical intervention," said OGC Nice .
