After regaining lawns in August as part of the League 1 against Guingamp, the Lorient midfielder Alain Traore is forced to abandon his teammates again. The Burkinabe got injured in his thigh against Valenciennes on Saturday during the fourth day of the championship, has informed his coach Christian Gourcuff. The stallion will be unavailable for six weeks because of a torn thigh muscle.
“(This is) the black spot of the evening,” said Gourcuff after the match.
Alain Traore was replaced by Mathieu Coutadeur in the 20th minute. Often injured, the midfielder had already missed a departure to Russia.
As a reminder, Alain Traore has also been deprived of the final phase of Afcon 2013 after having been victim of an injury in the third group match against Zambia.
