Atal, Kluivert: coach Galtier’s update ahead of Nantes match
This Sunday at 17 :00 CET, OGC Nice returns to Ligue 1 action in Round 5 of the campaign away to Nantes.
Speaking at the traditional pre-match press conference before the trip to La Beaujoire, coach Christophe Galtier gave an update on his squad, declaring that “apart from the injured players, everyone is available to start the game.”
The coach of Les Aiglons then spoke more specifically about Youcef Atal, injured in the opening minutes against Marseille: “Youcef will train normally tomorrow. In terms of his recovery, he has been very quick. Today, Friday, he participated in a part of training with the rest of the squad.
Tomorrow he will take part in the entire session and we will then see with Youcef and the medical staff if he is able to travel with the squad and play a part in the game.”
Justin Kluivert, however, will not be travelling to Nantes and “should resume training with the squad next week,” added the coach.
Jordan Lotomba is suspended for this Round 5 Ligue 1 clash.
