The Lyon midfielder will not skip a stage in his rehabilitation. “Two days ago I had this knee surgery, which went very well. We are recovering and we will work to come back fast and strong. On Tuesday I meet the club at the same time as the team. I will look at the next steps of my rehabilitation with the staff. It’s a complicated period, but these are moments that happen in a football career. It could have been more serious. I try to separate things. I hope to be back before the end of the season.
