Morocco: Amine Harit seriously injured during Monaco-OM and probably forfeited for the World Cup

Thursday afternoon, at a press conference at the Commanderie, OM midfielder Amine Harit had this prescient statement: “From the moment you start to calculate, to be careful not to hurt yourself, that’s when injuries happen. You have to play as if it were a normal match, and it’s by giving your all that you avoid injuries. You have to go into the duels at 100% and not think about the World Cup. The World Cup, if we have to do it, so much the better, if we get hurt in the last match, it’s fate, that’s what was planned. But there will be no restraint. »

In the 58th minute, pressing high in the Monaco camp, the 25-year-old Moroccan international, author of a good first period, twisted his left knee on contact with Axel Disasi. He collapsed, screaming in pain. “I take the ball, and on the momentum, I feel that there is contact, explains the ASM defender. At the time, I see nothing, then I feel like a crutch on my thigh. »

On the ground, Youssouf Fofana, who has known Harit since their adolescence in Ile-de-France, is upset. On the bench, Dimitri Payet, who is about to replace him, is marked. He too missed a World Cup in 2018, injuring himself just before. But there, the injury seems serious, very serious, and the player had an MRI late Sunday evening. ” It’s hot “, blows an OM leader. Captain Valentin Rongier has tender words for his attacking midfielder: “We are obviously very affected, and we hope that it will not be too serious … We saw without seeing too much, and then we tried to protect him. He looked sad and worried. Now we wait. I’m disgusted, afterwards, it was hard to get back into the game. »
