His cries of pain raise fears of a serious injury. Pedro Mendes was forced to go out on a stretcher this Friday during the meeting between Lille and Montpellier, at the opening of the 32nd day of Ligue 1. In the duel with Jonathan Bamba at the start of the second period, the central defender of the MHSC planted his crampons in Pierre-Mauroy’s grass and hurt his left knee badly.

Screams of pain

Screaming in pain for long seconds, he was taken in by the healers. His teammates and his opponents immediately came to see him to try to console him and accompany his exit from the field. It is the usual captain Vitorino Hilton who entered in his place, positioning himself in the axis alongside Daniel Congré.

Pedro Mendes, who moved from Rennes to Montpellier in the summer of 2017, had already injured his left knee at the end of 2019. He then missed two months of competition. Not always a holder this season, he remained on the bench during the last two days of Ligue 1 against Angers (1-1) and Marseille (3-3).
