Moroccan international Zakaria Aboukhlal will miss the final match of the Ligue 1 season between Toulouse FC and Stade Brestois due to an injury. This announcement marks a disappointing end to a season marked by both injury and controversy for the Toulouse winger.

Aboukhlal, who has been an essential player for Toulouse, was forced to leave the pitch in the second half of the match against Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Les Violets, a dedicated FC Toulouse news site, “the Moroccan international came out in the second half against PSG, supported by the club’s medical staff, due to a blow received on the ankle.”

This injury now rules him out of Toulouse’s concluding match against Brest.

This absence has also averted potential controversy. The final match coincides with the Ligue 1 initiative against homophobia, during which players are required to wear special badges featuring the rainbow flag.

Last season, Aboukhlal publicly declined to wear such a badge, sparking significant debate.

Earlier in the season, Aboukhlal sustained a knee injury that sidelined him after just five matches in the French championship.

However, he made a strong comeback in March, playing 14 matches and scoring three goals across all competitions since his return.

Despite these challenges, Aboukhlal’s contributions to Toulouse have been noteworthy. His resilience and determination in the face of injury highlight his importance to the team.

However, the timing of his recent ankle injury means that Toulouse will have to conclude their season without one of their key players.

As the team prepares to face Brest without Aboukhlal, they will undoubtedly miss his presence on the field.

The 24-year-old’s performance this season has demonstrated his skill and potential, making his absence in the final game a significant setback for Toulouse.

Aboukhlal’s journey this season has been a mix of highs and lows.

While injuries have limited his playing time, his return to form in the latter part of the season showcased his abilities and importance to Toulouse FC.

As he recovers from this latest setback, fans and teammates alike will be looking forward to his full recovery and return to the pitch next season.
