Romain Ntamack shares positive update following ACL operation

Following a frustrating injury for the French fly half, Romain Ntamack has shared a photo of himself post-operation after he underwent surgery on his ruptured ACL today.

The photo shows the talented number 10 resting in his hospital bed, albeit with his thumb up and smiling. The caption reads: “Opération bien passée. À bientôt”, which in English roughly translates to “Operation went well. See you soon”.

Speaking ahead of his operation last Sunday, Ntamack did a TV interview with Canal+ following the Toulouse win over Montpellier.

“It’s going pretty well”, he said at the time. “I spent two simple weeks. Let’s say, I spent some holidays with my family and loved ones. They made me move on. Of course, I kept in touch with the friends of the XV of France and I am also very happy with their victory (versus Australia).

“I’m going to have surgery this Thursday so I can’t wait to start my own World Cup and get back on the pitch as soon as possible, without going too fast to avoid a relapse.

“There is always more serious, it remains only rugby. I’m lucky to be quite young and maybe be able to play another World Cup if I give myself the means, but it’s frustrating. I had given myself the means to participate and start on September 8. I was blessed in the final of the Top 14 two months ago, and today a twist of fate fell on me.

“I’m taking this injury to rest mentally and physically. It’s been a very long time since I cut. I will take all the positives to help my teammates at Stade Toulousain.

“I hope France go as far as they can. I have been watching all the games. I try to take a step back as much as possible so as not to feel sorry for myself. I will take as long as it takes but I will come back. It’s just one knee, I still have a long way to go.”
