The noise had been running for a few hours.
It was confirmed this Friday by Bruno Genesio.
Already absent from the field for seven weeks, Stade Rennais winger Jérémy Doku was injured again.
Monday, during training, the young Belgian hurt his knee.
“Yes there is concern.
It is not a minor injury.
It is the external lateral ligament that is affected.
We will see in ten days to find out more about his downtime, ”Bruno Genesio said at the press conference before the match in Metz on Sunday.
According to the Rennes coach, the injury would not require surgery.
“He was great and had put a lot of effort into coming back.
It's a big blow for him and for us, ”admitted the coach.
The young Belgian would have seen his knee turn on a benign gesture by performing a banal outside of the foot.
The Belgian international was out in the match against FC Nantes (1-0 victory), hampered by a left thigh injury.
His return was announced for this meeting in Metz.
Lovro Majer back in the squad
On the other hand, Stade Rennais will be able to count on the return of Lovro Majer.
Transferred from Dinamo Zagreb at the end of the transfer window, the promising Croatian midfielder played only a few minutes in the red and black jersey in Angers, hampered by an injury contracted in the selection.
Back from a long trip to Zimbabwe, Ghanaian Kamaldeen Sulemana will also be in the group.
