Absent in Marseille last Friday in the Coupe de France (0-1) after suffering a muscle injury against PSG (1-0, January 15), Steve Mandanda will be back in goal for Rennes in Lorient, Friday evening (20th day of L1). On the other hand, Bruno Genesio has a new injured, the right side or midfielder Lorenz Assignon, who should be away from the field for several weeks.
“He injured his knee in Marseille, a problem with the posterior ligament, indicated the Rennes coach on Wednesday. We have a pretty amazing series. We had Baptiste Santamaria (ankle), Martin Terrier (knee), Xeka (ankle) and now Lorenz. Arnaud (Kalimuendo)it’s different, because it’s muscular (hamstring). These are unfortunate accidents. If it was repetitive muscle injuries to certain muscles, one might wonder about workload, or training on harder terrain, or look for explanations. But these are just unfortunate accidents so there is no rational explanation. As for Arnaud, we hope to see him again very soon, I hope maybe for Lille (February 4, Day 22), but nothing is certain for the moment. »
