Malgré la possibilité d'un départ imminent, Maxime Estève sera bien de la partie, ce dimanche. Midi Libre – JEAN MICHEL MART
Absent from the last two meetings, the winger returns to the Montpellier group, where the defender is present despite rumors of departure, for the reception of Lille, this Sunday January 28. The ex-Montpellier Cabella, on the other hand, is withdrawn.
Little by little, Montpellier is recovering its players. Tanguy Coulibaly, Joris Chotard and Christopher Jullien were called up on Saturday in the Montpellier group summoned to face Lille, this Sunday at La Mosson, during the 19th day of Ligue 1.
If the presence of Jullien and Chotard was hardly in doubt, both having served their suspension, that of Coulibaly was more uncertain. Victim of a dislocation of his left shoulder in Brest (2-0) on January 14, the ex-Parisian missed the trip to the Coupe de France on Wednesday. 60~/p>
"This morning, things were better, he felt less pain", Michel Der Zakarian nevertheless said on Friday. The optimism of the Hérault coach was confirmed this Saturday with the decision to call on the attacker.
The situation is much the same for Khalil Fayad. If he could have been traveling to Maubeuge, the midfielder was suffering from "pain under the foot" according to his coach. Who can finally count on his young player.
Lille recovers Bentaleb and Ounas
As he declared to the media, Der Zak also retained Maxime Estève. The subject of diligent courting by Burnley (Premier League), who reportedly made a second offer on Friday according to L'Equipe, the defender will be in the match against Lille. For a farewell ?
Result of the multiple returns, Allix, Issoufou and Maama, summoned on Wednesday in the Coupe de France, leave the group. Which is still missing the internationals involved in the CAN (Bertaud, Kouyaté, Sacko, Sylla, Tchato) or the Asian Cup (Tamari).
In Lille, coach Paulo Fonseca announced this Saturday at a press conference the packages of three players: defender Bafodé Diakité (shoulder), winger Ivan Cavaleiro (pubalgia ) and especially the midfielder Rémy Cabella. The ex-Montpellier suffers from hamstrings. "He needs one more week", said the Portuguese technician, keen not to take any risks. Nabil Bentaleb and Adam Ounas, eliminated from the CAN with Algeria, are back and will travel to Montpellier. But “they won't start,” announced Fonseca.
