Diallo forced into retirement?

Ligue 1 Conforama

Nîmes midfielder Moustapha Diallo is likely to have to retire at the age of 32 because of an ankle injury.

Diallo broke down against Montpellier at the end of September and hasn't been able to tran since. Sporting director Laurent Boissier said: "It's 80% sure it's over for him. It's a really big blow for us because he's the only player we have with a lot of Ligue 1 experience."

The rangy Senegalese has played 151 top division matches, almost all of them for Guingamp. When his contract with the Breton club expired in the summer, he signed a two-year deal with promoted Nîmes.
