Reims’ Marshall Munetsi out until 2024

Stade de Reims midfielder Marshall Munetsi (27) will not feature again in 2023 after suffering a sprained ankle during last weekend’s 3-1 defeat against Stade Rennais. 

Not only did Reims slump to a heavy defeat against Rennes on Sunday, they also lost one of their most crucial players. Zimbabwe international Munetsi was forced off in the 33rd minute at Roazhon Park with what looked like a severe ankle injury. 

Will Still was particularly worried about the injury sustained by Munetsi. “Let’s hope that it’s not too serious and that we don’t risk losing him for a very long time,” said the Englishman in the post-match press conference. Having underwent tests on the right ankle on Monday and they were reassuring. There is no break, and whilst Munetsi will be out for the rest of 2023, the worst has been avoided. 

Munetsi will be out until the winter break with what has been described as a considerable sprain. He is expected to return to the fold for Reims in January.
