After 154 days of absence, Alexis Claude-Maurice found the L1 Sunday in Troyes (1-0).
At the 72 ‘, he entered in place of Kasper Dolberg. Another profile to try to reverse the course of a game that the Aiglons were losing and that they ultimately lost. In a quarter of an hour of play, Claude-Maurice was active. Touched 10 balls, attempted and made 6 passes, suffered a foul, committed one and received a yellow card, 8 minutes after returning to competition.
To highlight this return, it is advisable to return to its starting point: the Nice – Strasbourg of May 16. Then in sparkling form, Alexis Claude-Maurice was broke in his tracks in the 39th minute of play. Taclé, injured, replaced, the playmaker was diagnosed a few days after the match: fractured fibula.
Behind, the international hopefuls (23) worked hard to come back. First in an individual way, framed by the red and black staff. Then within the group from September, “With a few grams more in the plug, the screws, the plates”, specified Christophe Galtier, but ” painless “. The training days gradually turned into weeks. “That he continues to work and to fill up well, it will come for him too”, explained the coach Galtier, very close to his No. 10 with his staff, in the wake of the success in Saint-Etienne (3-0, September 25).
The work therefore paid off for the former Lorientais, 154 days later. Here he is now back in the game and facing forward.
