Stade Rennais are in shock after the terrible injury of Martin Terrier


2022, an exceptional year for Martin Terrier. A potential starter at Stade Rennais, the striker was monstrous, responding more than ever to the expectations and hopes placed in him. Over the calendar year, the former LOSC player scored 23 goals in all competitions. If we are only interested in the 2022-23 financial year, the Frenchman has found the target 12 times. His last achievement dates from last night. The 25-year-old striker opened the scoring against Nice (2-1 victory). Something to start 2023 in the best way. But everything changed very quickly.

In the duel with Jordan Lotomba, Terrier collapsed holding his knee and screaming in pain (32nd). He was then evacuated on a stretcher. A very big blow for the native of Armentières, stopped in full swing while his name was mentioned in the French team and in the transfer window section (Tottenham, Arsenal, Newcastle). Even if Stade Rennais will have to wait for the results of the first examinations, many fear a rupture of the cruciate ligaments of the knee. Bruno Genesio is one of them, he who seemed disappointed after the meeting. His words are echoed by West France.

Genesio is pessimistic

“As of now, no (he had no news from Terrier). This is the big downside of the evening, which would have been almost perfect without this injury. We will have more news tomorrow (Tuesday). For the moment, his knee has swollen well, but we have no diagnosis. It’s much too early (…) It’s never very good. When the knee turns and swells, it’s never a good sign. But for now, I can’t say more. It is impossible to have a diagnosis immediately after the match..

Benjamin Bourigeaud was also shocked. “After his injury, we got together to say that we were going to play for him. When he came out, I shook his hand. He told me to win the game. I told him we would do it for him. We felt sad and downcast in the locker room. It can be serious.” Indeed, he could be absent six months or even much more if obviously it is the “crusaders”. The loss of the former OL player would be terrible for residents of Roazhon Park assured Bruno Genesio.

The transfer window as a solution?

“Martin is a very important player. He is an attacking leader, capable of scoring, of scoring. Again this evening, it is he who opens the scoring, he scores a second goal disallowed for offside. He is also very important in the construction of our game, so obviously, it will be a very difficult absence to fill. But there are also players who are there, who haven’t had a lot of playing time lately, and who will have the opportunity to show themselves. But we are very sad for him because he was really on a good dynamic. Apart from losing a very good player, it is for him that we are sad above all..

The Bretons, very pessimistic about Terrier’s injury, may have to consider his replacement during this transfer window. But again, Bruno Genesio thinks it will be complicated. “Replacing Martin, finding players of this quality in the transfer window, it’s impossible, considered Genesio. We will think, ask ourselves, wait for the medical verdict. But there are players capable of compensating for its absence, or the possibility of a different system (4-3-3). It is a reflection that we will have. » Rennes will be able to count on elements like Doku, Sulemana or Doué. But without Martin Terrier, life will necessarily be more difficult.
