At the microphone of beIN Sports, Franck Le Gall, the doctor of the France team, returned to his management of Samuel Umtiti’s injury at the 2018 World Cup.
Plagued by several physical glitches since the world coronation, the central defender of FC Barcelona has not regained its best level since the international tournament. Put on the start list by the new boss of the Catalan club, Samuel umtiti is always looking for sporting and physical stability. If the popular idea that he was sacrificed in Russia in 2018 gained ground, the reality would be quite different according to the historical doctor of EDF.
” Honestly, at the moment no sacrifice was made. We did not say to ourselves ‘we will go to the end, and then after your career…’. No, it certainly happened what happened behind, but we did not have the feeling of doing anything, he told the sports media. His problem has a solution, today he still plays football. “
If Franck Le Gall has clearly ruled out the idea of a sacrifice by Samuel Umtiti, he also pointed to the decisions that were taken after the World Cup. ” The rest was complicated for him, but other choices were made medically after the World Cup, choices that do not belong to us, continued the doctor of the France team. At no time were we in the notion of sacrifice with Sam. “
