Truro City have confirmed midfielder Michael Herve has fractured his humerous and has returned to his home in France.
The White Tigers’ fixture at home to Concord Rangers on Saturday had to be abandoned due to the injury.
The visitors led 1-0 when the incident happened 15 minutes from time.
An ambulance was called at roughly 4.30pm, but didn’t arrive for three hours with Herve unable to be moved from the pitch during that time.
The referee took the decision to abandon the match because there was no security available at the ground after 6pm.
The paramedics gave Herve 40 minutes of treatment when they arrived and he was kept overnight at Treliske Hospital before being discharged on Sunday.
A club statement confirmed: “Michael was released from hospital on Sunday with a badly fractured humerus.
“He left in hospital in a cast and has returned home to Paris for an assessment and consultation with doctors on what type of operation he needs to repair the fracture and onward rehabilitation.
“It is likely to be around three months before Michael could be fit again to return to action
“Everyone at Truro City FC would like to wish him well for the future.”
