This Thursday at the end of the afternoon, Alexis Sanchez was not on the lawn of the Commanderie when the Marseille players went out for collective training around 7:30 p.m. Two days away from OM-Nantes (Saturday, 9 p.m.), this is not reassuring news for the Chilean striker, recruited a week ago and who played 45 minutes of play in Brest on Sunday (1-1).
A little earlier at a press conference, his coach, Igor Tudor, had however spoken of a full group for the reception of Nantes, while goalkeeper Pau Lopez (psoas) found his way back to the field this week. We do not know the nature of the physical problem of Sanchez, who had started the collective session the day before. But during this set-up on Wednesday, the former Inter Milan player had to leave prematurely, visibly affected.
While he was apart with Salim Ben Seghir, it was Bamba Dieng, sidelined since the preparation during all the oppositions, who replaced the Chilean to make up the number. The Senegalese striker even scored on one of his first balls.
