The French Volleyball Federation (FFV) informed that the main star of its Men’s National Team, Earvin Ngapeth, will miss the most of the preliminary round at the upcoming CEV European Men’s Championship!


Due to rib injury, Ngapeth will miss the start of the 2019 EuroVolley and his unavailability to play is estimated to a minimum of three games. In the worst case, to five games! Recall that the one of the best players in the world felt a flank pain (the side of a body between the ribs and the hip) during the warm-up for the test match against Germany. Ngapeth spent Monday in a hospital in Montpellier and underwent an ultrasound and an MRI after which the nature of his injury became clearer.

On the other hand, good news came regarding the condition of Trévor Clévenot. The ultrasound of his adductor showed that he did not sustain injury and, therefore, he will resume training with the group for the first match at the EuroVolley against Romania, on Thursday, September 12.

France Head Coach Laurent Tillie decided to re-summon Thibault Rossard in order to have an outside hitter more in the roster. He will replace his cousin Nicolas Rossard in the final list for the continental championship, which is yet to be announced.

And if you only wanted to pass along a criticism, you should have left your last sentence out and sounded less insulting.
