Selon mes informations, Jean-Kevin Augustin serait actuellement à l’hôpital après avoir pris une trop forte dose de gaz hilarant. Notre ancien attaquant serait paralysé de ses quatre membres depuis maintenant une semaine

“According to my information, Jean-Kevin Augustin is currently in the hospital after taking too much laughing gas. Our former striker has been paralyzed in his four limbs for a week now.”
It remains to be seen if the striker has indeed been hospitalized, but he has replied the journalist who made the claim thus on Twitter:
Mais qu’est tu racontes toi ? Tout va bien… c’est gentil de t’en préoccuper, mais faut revoir tes informations et tes sources. https://t.co/KytMIRvPYh

“But what are you talking about? It’s okay … it’s nice to worry about it, but you have to review your information and sources.”
The Frenchman joined the Elland Road outfit from RB Leipzig on loan in January, but constantly struggled with fitness and injuries, playing just 49 minutes of football before returning to France ahead of the restart in June.
Having sealed Premier League promotion, Leeds are obligated to pay Leipzig £18 million for Augustin’s signature due to a clause in his loan deal, and a legal battle is now on the cards with the club no longer keen on him.
