Raphael Ohin To Miss 2022 Season
Valour FC will be marching into its fourth campaign without one of its only two remaining club originals.
The Winnipeg-based side has confirmed that midfielder Raphael Ohin will miss the upcoming season after suffering an ACL tear during preseason.
Ohin was notably absent during the club’s recent trip to Victoria, though at the time there was no indication his injury was a season-ending one. Unfortunately, today’s news confirms that this is the case.
Ohin’s agency has reported that he already underwent a successful surgery, with the midfielder now set for a long road to his recovery.
The 26-year-old has matured well during his tenure with Valour FC, where he’d proven to be a crucial cog under both Rob Gale and new boss Phillip Dos Santos. He’s made 57 appearances across all competitions for the Winnipeg-based side, 28 of which came last season.
His third season with Valour also saw the midfielder score his first professional goal, with emotional reaction making it clear how much the moment meant to the midfielder:
The club ran into difficulties when team captain Andrew Jean-Baptiste suffered a season-ending injury last year, though the stalwart defender is now nearing his return. Thus far, none of the other Canadian Premier League clubs have reported any season-ending injuries.
Valour FC is set to begin its fourth season with an away trip to Clarke Stadium on April 10.
