RC Lens is guaranteed to occupy the second place in L1 after fifteen dayswhatever the result of the match against Clermont Foot, this Saturday (5 p.m.) at Bollaert-Delelis, fifteenth match in L1 sold out in a row.
But the artesian club will not be able to count on Massadio Haïdara, suspended, nor on his long-term injuries: his goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez (rupture of the cruciate ligaments), his right piston Jimmy Cabot (rupture of the cruciate ligament of the left knee) and his forward -Polish center Adam Buksa. The latter suffered a stress fracture in a foot in selection this summer.
“It’s not easy for him because he already had a problem like this at the start of the season”
“He has an appointment with his surgeon early next week.said Franck Haise, general manager of RC Lens. It is likely that we are heading for an operation. It would then be a fairly long shutdown again, around more or less three months. It’s not easy for him because he already had a problem like this at the start of the season. We hoped to give ourselves time for him to find his place even more, even if he adapted perfectly on a human level, during the international break. In particular in order to integrate it even more into our game. It will take even more time. »
