‘After the Career’ – leg amputation at 49
Bruno Rodriguez played once for Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco. He finished his career at the age of 32. He could not get rid of the physical problems he was suffering from at that time. Then he decided to have an amputation.
DrFormer French striker Bruno Rodriguez amputated his right leg. The Players Association said that due to the ongoing pain as a result of his football career, the 49-year-old decided to take the step.
His former club Paris Saint-Germain addressed the former player and his family directly with a message of support: “The club gives you all its strength and hopes to welcome you to the Parc des Princes as soon as possible.” Despite numerous operations in the past five years, amputation has become inevitable.
The report stated verbatim that the former Ligue 1 striker had had his leg amputated due to “continuous suffering” from “the effects of his football career”. Persistent inflammation after an ankle injury is the cause. Due to major problems with his ankle, Rodriguez had to end his career at the age of 32.
