'Youcef will be missing for several months'
While speaking at the press conference to present new loan signing Riza Durmisi, Patrick Vieira was asked about Youcef Atal’s know injury, suffered in the 4-1 win over Metz last weekend. “He will be sidelined for several months,” answered the coach, before adding: “Between three and five months? It’s hard to say. A few months. The operation went very well and there were no complications. That’s very good news. Now we have to leave his knee the time to recover and then see whether it will be closer to five months or three months.”
