Top 14 club Montpellier confirmed on Sunday that French international back Benjamin Fall was leaving the club.

Fall, 31, who has played 14 times for France, moved to Montpellier from Racing 92 in 2014.

He helped Montpellier to the Top 14 final in 2018, when they lost to Castres, and to victory in the European Challenge Cup in 2016.

"I came to Montpellier to win titles and to return to the French team, some things have been achieved and others have not," Fall, who last played for France in 2018, told the club website.

"I promised myself I'd become French champion with this club and this failure will stick in my throat."

Injuries limited Fall to two club appearances before the season was halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

"I don't know where I'll be playing next year but I'm looking forward to getting back on the pitch," he said.
