Indeed, victim of an almost total disinsertion of the hamstring muscles of the thigh, the left pillar of Clermont must put an end to his season and the start of the next, as his club announced this Thursday. Aged 28, the native of Issoire will be operated on in the coming days at the Clinique du Sport in Paris, specializing in these pathologies, and should be absent from the field for between six to eight months.

“It’s a big blow for the Clermont front line which will have to deal with the absence until the end of the season (and the start of the next) of his left pillar, Etienne Falgoux, victim on Tuesday of a big muscle injury during training. Accidentally, the left-hander almost completely ruptured the hamstring muscle in his left thigh during a run. Taken in charge immediately by the doctor of “yellow and blue”, Rémi Gaulmin, who had an MRI in the wake of the Clermont, the diagnosis of disinsertion (almost total) of the muscle at the level of the proximal tendons (at the level of the hip) has been laid. This serious muscle injury will force the pillar of Clermont to undergo surgery in the middle of next week at the Clinique du Sport (in Paris) specializing in these pathologies. He will then have to undergo a long rehabilitation before resuming competition after a period of unavailability of between 6 and 8 months depending on the progress of his rehabilitation. », Can we read in the club press release.
