Tef’ top scorer last year, Rhys Healey could soon pack his bags. The English striker would have announced to his relatives his imminent departure from the pink city. If the identity of his future has not leaked, Healey would be at the heart of discussions between Toulouse president Damien Comolli and several Championship clubs.
Here is a departure that will sadden the supporters of Téfécé. Arrived in 2020 in Occitanie from League One (3rd English division) and MK Dons, the English striker very quickly established himself as an essential element of Tef’.
A difficult preparation
Rhys Healey started his summer with a groin injury, not the best way to begin an oh so important preparation in the quest for maintenance for the purples.
In addition, during the off-season, the Toulouse leaders decided to furnish a little more an offensive sector already provided with Rhys Healey, Rafael Ratao, Ado Onaiwu, Junior Flemmings, Nathan N’goumou and Yanis Begraoui. Whether Zakaria Aboukhlal came to take the starting place on the right wing, the former Excelsior Thijs Dallinga came to compete with the England striker.
And for Damien Comolli and his teams it’s a successful bet. Coming back from injury, Rhys Healey was satisfied with the crumbs left by his young teammate in preparation. It is moreover Dallinga who was aligned at the forefront of the attack of Tef ‘on the occasion of the first day of Ligue 1 Uber Eats. Scorer against OGC Nice, the young Batavian was replaced in the 79th minute by his English teammate.
On track to lose his starting spot, the Manchester native wants to take the lead and find playing time at a new club. After spending almost all of it in the UK, Rhys Healey could most likely return. Some Championship clubs would be very interested in the idea of repatriating the one who found the net 20 times in Ligue 2 last year. As of now, only the name of freshly relegated Burnley has leaked.
As for Toulouse FC, this departure will not be without difficulty as the English striker has been important in its reconstruction. However, from a sporting point of view, Philippe Montanier does not lack a quality substitute.
Young and old gathered at the Stadium by the same passion ????
