Medical update

Some news about Pepe and Atal

On the eve of the trip to Lens (kick-off Wednesday at 21:00), Didier Digard gave an update on Nicolas Pepe and Youcef Atal. 

The Ivorian international was not in the squad for the match against Lille and is suffering from "tendonitis" in his knee: "We will put a protocol in place. It is mainly his reaction to the treatment that will determine the length of his absence," said the coach. Before giving some information about the Algerian fullback, who left the field a few minutes after his entrance against Lille last Sunday (1-0): "Youcef has a small hamstring injury. He will have a rest period. We are going to regenerate him mentally because we know how difficult it is. Then it will be a standard rehabilitation period. It's something that had to happen but that we couldn't foresee because he did everything well and will continue to do everything well until luck smiles on him. There are no particular worries and as long as he does everything well, there are no regrets. We must continue this way."
