William Accambray suffered a torn Achilles tendon
Our French left back will miss months.

Yesterday, during the game between Grundfos Tatabánya and Telekom Veszprém, which ended with the win of the guest team, William Accambray torn his Achilles tendon after his left foot stuck to the floor while stepping. The first diagnose was later confirmed by examinations in the Csolnoky Ferenc Hospital in Veszprém.

The French left back – with the approval of the Club – flew to Montpellier this morning where he will undergo surgery. Our player will miss months. The doctors will be able to determine the accurate date of his return after the surgery, and seeing how well his rehabilitation goes.

We wish a quick recovery for Willy!
