blow for Toulouse, which loses Healey for a very long time
Toulouse FC announced on Monday the serious injury of striker Rhys Healey, top scorer in Ligue 2 last season. The Englishman is suffering from a ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee.
TFC supporters are losing one of their favorites. Top scorer in Ligue 2 last season with 20 goals, Rhys Healey (27) suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in his left knee during the meeting between the Violets and FC Lorient this Sunday (2- 2, 3rd day of Ligue 1). According to the press release from the Haut-Garonne club, the English striker will be operated on Friday and will have to observe a « long-term » absence.
Arrived from Milton Keynes Dons (English third division) in the summer of 2020, Healey quickly made a place for himself within the Toulouse workforce. An aggressive and never stingy striker, the Englishman scored 14 goals in Ligue 2 during his first season with the TFC, before reaching the 20 mark last season.
A first blow in the TFC season
This season, he had been pushed to the bench by the arrival of the promising Thijs Dallinga (two goals in three Ligue 1 games). Coming into play at the end of the match during the first three days of the championship, Healy found the net against Troyes on August 14 (2nd day). After a successful start to the season on the accounting point (6th in Ligue 1 with five points), the TFC must face a first blow.
