Nantes striker Gregory Pujol will miss the rest of the season due to an ankle injury.Nantes have been dealt a blow in their struggle against relegation with the news that Gregory Pujol will not play again this season.
The forward underwent surgery on Tuesday for a troublesome ankle ligament problem, and will require six weeks in a cast before another similar duration of rehabilitation.
Les Canaris are just five points above the drop zone, and coach Serge Le Dizet will be disappointed to lose his forward as he attempts to steer the Ligue 1 outfit away from trouble.
Pujol is planning to take his time over the recovery process in a bid to retake his place at La Beaujoire-Louis-Fonteneau in time for the resumption of next year's campaign.
