ASSE: Mason, “the evolution of my rehabilitation is perfect”
Yvann Maçon suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, not with ASSE, but with the Espoir de France selection. It was October 12, 2020, against the U21s of Slovakia, for qualifying for Euro 2021. The young full-back of the Greens had left the field on a stretcher, shortly before the break (42nd). AS Saint-Étienne had issued an official statement to announce the bad news, but also to support its nugget. “Yvann Maçon suffered a dislocation of his right knee, responsible for a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. He will be operated on by Doctor Sonnery-Cottet. ASSE gives its full support to its young defender whose season is already over, ”the Loire club informed on October 14, 2020.

I was supported by the team, the staff and the whole club, it was good for my morale. The hardest part is behind me, now what interests me is the athlete, “said Yvann Maçon.
When will the young defender return?
On the question of the date of his probable return, the Habs U21 did not plan. However, he indicated that his return will depend on the reaction of his body, during the delicate and long process of rehabilitation. “I have no idea when I’ll be back on the pitch and up and running. I hope as soon as possible. I feel good, better and better so we’ll see how it evolves, but I can’t give a date. Everyone would like me to come back for the end of the season, me, the staff, but it’s my body that is in control, “replied the versatile left-back.
ASSE recruited Yvann Maçon from USL Dunkirk, at the very end of the winter transfer window, in January 2020. He thus signed his first professional contract with the Greens, until June 2023. He made his debut in Ligue 1 on February 9, 2020 against Montpellier HSC and a defeat (1-0) at Mosson. Before his injury, the native of Guadeloupe played 6 Ligue 1 matches and has started as many times with the Stéphane team this season. He even scored a goal and delivered an assist. Last season, he played in the final of the Coupe de France against PSG, in July 2020.
