'Constant suffering' – Former PSG striker Bruno Rodriguez has leg AMPUTATED after 'effects of playing career'

FORMER Paris Saint-Germain and Bradford forward Bruno Rodriguez has ended his ‘constant suffering’ by having his leg amputated.

The 49-year-old retired from football back in 2005 and has now undergone the life-changing operation 17 years later.

The news was confirmed by The Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionels (UNFP) in a statement over the weekend.

That read: “He was one of the strikers who marked our football from the early 90s to the heart of the 2000s.

“@UNFP sends strength and courage to Bruno Rodriguez, who had to, after the effects of his football career, resolve to the amputation of a leg by dint of permanent suffering.”

PSG also sent a message of support, saying: “Paris Saint-Germain sends a message of support to its former striker Bruno Rodriguez, his family and his loved ones in this difficult ordeal.

“The Club brings you all its strength and hopes to be able to welcome you as soon as possible to the Parc des Princes.”

Rodriguez spent most of his career in his native France, playing for Monaco, Bastia, Strasbourg and Metz before spending a season at PSG from 1999.

That same year he was sent to the Premier League for a loan spell with Bradford.

But he only played 55 minutes of football for the now League Two side and then returned to PSG briefly before signing for Lens.
