OGC Nice’s Sofiane Diop ruled out until end of season after foot surgery

Francesco Farioli has confirmed that Sofiane Diop (23) will be out until the end of the season after the OGC Nice forward underwent surgery. 

Diop has been struggling with a foot problem In recent weeks. It had been hoped that surgery would not be required, but with the situation showing no signs of improving, the Moroccan international, in collaboration with the club, took the decision to undergo a procedure to remedy the problem. However, as a result, he will not play against for Nice until the end of the season.

Sanson could return for Nice

“The operation went well. I spoke with him yesterday, and he will return this evening (Friday),” said Farioli in a press conference, attended by Get French Football News. It is a blow for Le Gym, who are not blessed with depth in the attacking sector. 

Farioli also confirmed that Youssouf Ndayishimiye and Valentin Rosier will both be out of Sunday’s encounter against Stade de Reims, although there is a “90% chance” that Aston Villa loanee Morgan Sanson will return to the squad.
