After Lille’s victory on the PSG field this Saturday (1-0), in the shock of the 30th day of Ligue 1, Christophe Galtier returned to the absence of Xeka. The player is subject to a sanction from the club.
It was the absentee surprise of the day and it was not because of an injury. Xeka was not in the Lille group this Saturday, during the victory against PSG (1-0) in the shock of the 31st day of Ligue 1. While we thought of a physical glitch for the Portuguese midfielder, the reason for this forfeit is ultimately disciplinary.
“If this can last? We’ll see”
“Xeka had yesterday, after training, inappropriate behavior, inappropriate. He had the sanction of not being in the group. If this can last? We will see”, simply released his trainer Christophe Galtier at a press conference . While the technician was delighted with the performance of his players during the meeting, his face was closed when talking about Xeka.
Another shadow on the table, the injury of Jonathan David, shortly after his goal – that of victory and the very good Lille in the standings – and which earned him to be replaced in the first period. “He has a very bad ankle injury, maybe for a while. We’ll see if he needs to be in a cast. He’s on crutches,” said Christophe Galtier after the meeting.
