It is a blow for Brest Bretagne Handball, which loses its left-back Kalidiatou Niakaté “for several weeks, as its coach, Laurent Bezeau tells us. She suffers from a big sprain (to the left ankle, editor’s note), and I think that we will not see her again at least before the end of April ”.
Niakaté, who came back well after missing the months of January and February, when she was injured in the thigh, has a chain of injuries in recent seasons. In 2019, still in Nantes, she had undergone an operation on the patellar tendon of the left knee. Rebelote in 2020 after a ruptured Achilles tendon, with Brest, this time.
Released after 50 seconds of play last Sunday against Metz, in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League, Niakaté should also have taken part in the Olympic preparation camp, in Créteil, from April 11 to 21, with the France team.
