Mouctar Diakhaby suffers a dislocation in his right knee, according to the first medical evaluations this Sunday. It is not possible to know exactly how long the Valencia center back will be out, but it is a fact that he will miss the rest of this season.

The injury occurred last Saturday in the match between Valencia and Real Madrid, when Diakhaby was involved in an accident with Aurelien Tchouaméni, in which the Madrid midfielder fell on the leg of his rival and the knee of the Franco defender. Guinean pried. The match was stopped for a few minutes due to the shock of the rest of the players, who raised their hands to their heads when they saw the seriousness of the situation and desperately asked for medical assistance.

Diakhaby left the field to applause on a stretcher and then left Mestalla in an ambulance to spend the night in the hospital. That is where the first evaluations have been carried out and where he awaits further tests, according to the Valencian entity.

The expressions of solidarity were immediate and Valencia did not take long to transmit “a lot of strength” to Diakhaby: “The entire Valencian family is with you.” Tchouaméni himself, who was very affected immediately after the accident, wished “a speedy recovery” for his professional colleague.

With the loss of the French-born player, Rubén Baraja loses one more center back so far this season, after the departure of Gabriel Paulista to Atlético de Madrid. The Turkish Cenk Ozkaçar seems to be the first substitute in line to accompany the Colombian Cristhian Mosquera in the center, who has earned himself an immovable position in the Baraja system. Before the injury, Diakhaby had played 14 games in LaLiga, 12 of them as a starter.
