Favre: “Atal has recovered”

“[Youcef] Atal has recovered. He returned to training fully fit today,” Lucien Favre confirmed in his pre-match press conference today, with two days to go until the game at home to FC Nantes on Matchday 12 of Ligue 1 (kick-off at 17:05 CET).

Les Aiglons’ manager also explained that Hicham Boudaoui, who was rested for the trip to Auxerre, took part in training, whilst also hailing Wednesday’s reassuring news regarding Andy Delort, who came off prematurely at the Stade Abbé-Deschamps on Sunday with a knee injury. “After ten seconds, it was really alarming. In the end, though, it’s not a serious one. The positive thing is that he won’t be out for a long time.”

Finally, Sofiane Diop, who picked up a knock against Slovácko, has started “running slowly” again, the Swiss tactician clarified.
