Didier Digard confirmed on Friday Chephren Thuram’s injuryvictim of a muscle injury to the right thigh, last Saturday, in Strasbourg, in Ligue 1 (0-2). The Nice coach even announced the end of the season, almost certain, of his midfielder, three days before the end of the Championship. “There is a good chance that his very long season will be over a little faster than it should have been”said his coach at a press conference.
Last Saturday, in Strasbourg, Thuram (22) came out in the 43rd minute of play holding his thigh. After the meeting, Digard admitted “his share of responsibility” in the injury of his French international (a cape), at the microphone of Prime Video: “I exposed him way too much. He gives himself the means to be able to continue. He is ultra-professional. But at some point, I have to think about the player, give him a breather. I didn’t and I’m sorry. »
So far, Thuram has taken part in all the matches played by Nice this season (48 matches in all competitions). Injured, the tricolor midfielder should thus miss the reception of Toulouse on Sunday, the trip to Montpellier next weekend, then the reception of OL, during the last day of Ligue 1. Thuram could have played his last match under the jersey embroidered with the eagle, last Saturday, in Strasbourg: the environment is followed by several European clubs, including PSG.
