Sylvain Marveaux out until 2011
Rennes’ attacking options have taken another blow with the announcement that Sylvain Marveaux will be out of action until the new year with a groin strain.
Just after Colombian striker Victor-Hugo Montaño returned from a four-week injury absence, Rennes have learned that star attacking midfielder Sylvain Marveaux will be out for six weeks after aggravating the groin strain that kept him out of action at the beginning of the season.
Marveaux, the subject of intense transfer speculation during the summer, notably from the English Premier League, after a stellar season 2009-10, has been plagued by groin injuries this season.
After missing most of the start of the season with the injury, the speedy midfielder came to an abrupt halt in Saturday’s 2-1 Breton derby win over Brest, limping off in the 56th minute.
Club doctors have announced that he is suffering from a serious tear to his groin muscles and will be out for at least six weeks, and will therefore not be back in action until January 2011.
