Noah Fadiga and the Stade Brestois are over. The right rear has announced his departure from the French club. The French Football Federation (FFF) has decided to revoke its license for medical reasons (irregular heart rhythm). But the son of Senegalese legend Khalilou Fadiga, who consulted Professor Pedro Brugada, was reassured by the cardiologist: he can continue to practice his profession.
Noah Fadiga will no longer play in France. In a statement shared on social media, on Monday, July 10, 2023, the right back of the Stade Brestois announces that the FFF has «revoked» its license that could allow it to play in France.
After tests at the end of last season at my Stade Brestois 29 club, it was revealed that an irregularity had occurred in my heart rate. I then underwent thorough examinations by cardiologist professor Pedro Brugada. Based on these tests, Prof. Brugada allowed me to pursue my career without any risk,” the Senegalese international said in a statement published on social networks.
Unfortunately, the medical board of the French Football Federation has a zero tolerance policy and has revoked my French football license. I am therefore a free player. The medical opinion of an authority such as Pr. Brugada reassures me that I will be able to pursue my great passion, my football career,” the defender said.
The native of Bruges will therefore have to find another club for the new season. I prepared intensively for the new season with Lieven Maesschalck’s Move to Cure team and feel very fit and motivated. See you in the field,” he concluded.
Arriving in Brest in 2022, Noah Fadiga was not spared by physical problems, which even delayed his arrival on the national team. He is leaving the Stade Brestois with 22 matches played, including 21 in Ligue 1.
