Bordeaux midfielder Otavio out for the rest of the season

Ligue 1 side Bordeaux were dealt a blow on Wednesday when they announced that 26-year-old Brazilian central midfielder Otavio had ruptured his Achilles tendon in training and will be out for the rest of the season.

Les Girondins are sounding out the market to find a replacement for their most crucial midfield player who will likely imminently undergo surgery on the issue.

A statement from FCGB read that they wished the Brazilian: “lots of courage in this challenge.”
