Noah Fadiga in Brest, it's over. The 23-year-old defender, absent from the pitch since the end of April because of recurring hip problems, announced on Monday on social networks the end of his Breton adventure.

The Senegalese right-back, who did not participate in the resumption of training of the Ligue 1 club last week, reveals "the existence of an irregularity of the heart rhythm" and is no longer under contract with Stade Brestois, which he joined in the summer of 2022 for four years from Dutch club Heracles Almelo.

Fadiga assures that he does not suffer from the same disease as his father, Khalilou, a victim of ventricular tachycardia who had to have a defibrillator fitted in the early 2000s.

"After tests carried out at the end of last season at my club Stade Brestois 29, it was revealed that an irregularity had occurred in my heart rate," the Senegalese said in a statement. I then underwent extensive examinations by cardiologist professor Pedro Brugada. Based on these tests, Prof. Brugada allowed me to continue my career without any risk. »

But the medical commission of the French Football Federation was not of the same opinion. "Unfortunately, it has a zero-tolerance policy and has revoked my French football license. So I'm a free agent. The medical advice of an authority such as Professor Brugada reinforces my conviction that I will be able to pursue my great passion, my football career, he adds. I have prepared intensively for the new season with the team of Lieven Maesschalck (Belgian physiotherapist who works with the Red Devils) and feel in great shape and very motivated. See you soon on the ground! »
