After suffering a concussion on Friday in Marseille, the central defender will not be able to take his place, Sunday, April 9, at La Mousson against Toulouse.
The doctor said no. Defender Kiki Kouyaté lost to play on Sunday 9 April (3pm) at Stade La Mousson against Occitane’s neighbor: Toulouse during the 30th.H First league day: The FI (25), who passed the exams in Marseille, consulted a neurologist in Montpellier on Monday who recommended resuming training next week. “He will return to the field at the end of this week, before resuming with the group, starting next Tuesday,” said Michel Der Zakarian.
Kouyaté suffered a concussion at the Stade Velodrome on Friday in a mid-air collision with Portuguese forward OM: Vitinha. After being removed from the lawn on a stretcher, he was placed under observation for one night at the Marseille Hospital.
Musah and Esteve are still absent
The former Messina, who was replaced by Mamadou Sakho, will be absent for the first time at central defense since his reassuring arrival at the end of January. In addition to Kouyaté, coach Michel Der Zakarian will still be deprived of Vitout Moussa, who is recovering after a torn thigh injury on March 15 in training, and defender Maxime Esteve, who underwent surgery last week to suture a wound in the abdominal wall.
The two players in the right lane: Arnaud Nordin and Fly Sacco, victims respectively of a blow to the groin and a muscle caution in Marseille, survived the first two days of training. Left side Théo Sainte-Luce was stopped by a torn calf to resume his game with the “reserve” on 25 March, and left for a week in Cape Breton for treatment. Ex-nim has been missing for several weeks.
Good game from Ferry with the reserves
Finally, Jordan Ferry, who was serving a one-match suspension, is back in action again. On Saturday, the midfielder even participated in the “reserve” card (6-0) against Ajdi, under the eyes of Michel Der Zakarian. “He managed to do well by setting the pace of the game,” confirms the Montpellier technician. With Joris Chotard and Léo Leroy, “interesting” in the Vélodrome, and Ferri, Der Zak will have the choice of kings.
