Nottingham Forest defender Giulian Biancone was struck by an injury earlier in the season but he’s posted a recovery update on Twitter. The Frenchman signed from Troyes in the summer and isn’t expected to be back in action during 2022/23.
Biancone was an unknown quantity when he swapped Ligue 1 for the Premier League. He was forced to make do with a couple of substitute appearances and an outing against Grimsby in the Carabao Cup before he damaged knee ligaments in training.
It will be a long road back for the youngster but he’s working tirelessly. Surgery on the 22-year-old’s right leg has gone extremely well and it would appear that the player is already doing the hard yards in the gym trying to get himself right.
Biancone was at Troyes for a single year before signing for Forest. There, he made 33 appearances, scoring one goal and claiming two assists for the French outfit.
He typically operates as a right-sided wing-back. He can, however, operate as a central defender should Steve Cooper opt to utilise a three-man defensive unit.

Biancone was joined at the City Ground by several other new faces. He will have been gutted to pick up such a serious injury when he’s yet to find his feet in the Premier League.
Biancone has posted an update on Twitter as he eyes Forest return
Although it’s not expected to be soon, the defender will have a target date in mind for his return. He will also be hoping that he can be ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation.
Biancone has today posted an encouraging update. It would appear that he’s busy trying to get some mobility back through his knee and he’s been hard at work in the gym.
Intriguingly, the Reds have had some other injury problems defensively since he picked up his injury. Had he been fit and available, he would have likely played in a few more games by now.
Still, there is nothing he can do about that now and it’s great to see that his spirits appear to be high on the road to recovery.
