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 Île-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. »

“I don’t know what he has but I think it’s quite serious. This win is for him.”

“From what we know, it’s a very big injury,” announced his trainer Igor Tudor, on Prime Video. “He got injured just before the World Cup, we talked about it all week, I’m very sad. »

“We are saddened by this injury, it seems to me to be a bit serious all the same, reacted his teammate Mattéo Guendouzi at the microphone of the match broadcaster. It’s very difficult, we know what’s behind it, the dream for him to play it again, since he had played that of 2018. He is an exceptional boy in his mentality and who is making a very good start to season, it hurts the heart, all the same. »

“I don’t know what he has but I think it’s quite serious,” abounded Jordan Veretout. “This victory is for him. He went to the hospital, it’s a very difficult moment for him, we are all behind him. »
