“Dimitri Payet suffered a calf muscle injury assessed by the usual reference examinations. Treatments have already started but full recovery will only happen after the end of the championship., could we read on the official press release published by the Ciel-et-Blanc this Saturday morning. A real blow for the 35-year-old, who left his family prematurely during the elimination in the semi-finals of the Europa League Conference, against Feyenoord on Thursday.
In a message posted on his social networks, the French international reacted. “Once again, I’m not going to be able to do what I love most in the world, playing football. After having passed the last exams today, the results are reassuring but show that unfortunately I could not play again this season. The disappointment is great, the pain is strong, but I am well surrounded and all your messages of support give me the strength to look ahead, so next season starts tomorrow for me. The hardest thing today for me is not being able to help my teammates in this final stretch. I would obviously be behind them and all the staff for the last 3 games that we know are important to achieve the objective set.. A real blow for OM at the end of the season.
