Bordeaux: Mbaye Niang expected against Reims

Absent surprise from the group selected to face Lorient last Sunday, Mbaye Niang would have been the subject of a reflection with his physical trainer and Vladimir Petkovic, reports Sud Ouest.

Continuing his recovery program, the former Rennais was therefore exempted from this meeting so as not to disrupt his last sessions. “We must also take into account the emotional dimension. So, to count on him 100% for the rest of the season, we decided with him and the coach not to take any risks in Lorient ”, assures Antonio Calado.

The return of the Bordeaux striker could be made this weekend for the reception of Reims, as part of the 12th day of Ligue 1. According to Antonio Calado, the player is “Particularly involved”, to the point of asking for a double session on Tuesday, a day off. It should be operational Sunday for the reception of Reims. “But in the end, it’s the coach who decides! “
