Pains for Belkebla, Sick Court

Although he hasn’t played with SB29 since December 6, Haris Belkebla « still has a bit of ankle pain, the same one he feels from his selection with Algeria Coach. « For tomorrow’s game, we won’t have it. We’ll watch for the Toulouse game (Saturday) explained the technician. Then he gave more details about the injury: ” It’s an injury we’re dragging. Maybe he picked it up too soon. He wanted to play, forced him and certainly didn’t solve the business. But we’re on the right track, it’s a matter of days. It can run, it is in certain supports that it hurts. »

In Yoann Court, the third best passerby in Ligue 1 Conforama (7 assists), the absence should be shorter. « He’s sick.Dall’Oglio explained. I don’t think he’s fit, we’ll see him this afternoon. With a last-minute surprise, SB29 will be able to count on the rest of their group in Lyon, even if their coach has announced a lot of rotation. « There will be changes because Saturday’s match against Toulouse FC is also very important. We know it’s a little difficult to string together three games for some. There’ll be kids, like last time. »

“Cherki and Gouiri would delight some clubs”

Asked about the possibility of the OL lining up several of its youngsters on Wednesday, the Breton coach returned to the talent of Lyon’s team, a danger besides him: ” The young people they bring have a lot of quality. Cherki, Gouiri, would delight some clubs in Ligue 1 Conforama. When you have talented kids like the one who comes, they want to try it. I don’t know if it will be an advantage for us or not… I think the BKT League Cup is becoming a priority for Lyon, so I don’t think he’s taking it over his shoulder. Quite the opposite. »
