Happy event for Amel Majri, who in a few months will become a mother. Olympique Lyonnais announced the news on Friday and assures that the medical staff will closely monitor the progress of the pregnancy. The player will also become the first French international to have a child during her career.
Seriously injured left knee last October, Amel Majri (28 years old) saw his season end much earlier than expected with the women of Olympique Lyonnais. If the midfielder will have to wait several months before returning to the lawns because of this rupture of the cruciate ligaments, Majri has learned in recent weeks some good news.
This Friday, Les Gones announced the pregnancy of the 28 year-old player. Via a press release , the club congratulated Majri and her husband for this happy event and assures that “the Lyonnaise will continue to be closely followed by the staff doctor of the club to calmly continue her pregnancy and the rehabilitation of her left knee, operated last October.”
An event for French women’s football
With this announcement, Majri has just inscribed her name in the history of French women’s football. The player will thus become the first international Les Bleues to have a child during her career.
In order to return to the field in good conditions, the Frenchwoman can seek advice from one of her teammates. Icelandic Sara Bjork had also become pregnant, and returned to training a few days ago as she announced on Instagram, while taking care to send a strong message: “Coming back by plane in Being a mother to my family is something very special to me, and I hope to inspire other women who don’t have to sacrifice their careers to have a family! Do both.”
