Last March, Paris FC was weighed down by the injuries of six of its seven attackers. We are still far from this carnage. But the smiles of victory on Saturday in Grenoble (2-1) were quickly tarnished by the medical report of the evening. Both out of injury during the match, the team’s two centre-forwards, Pierre-Yves Hamel and Warren Caddy will be « absent for several weeks due to muscular problems », Thierry Laurey announced this Thursday at the conference of hurry.
“Compared to what happened to us last season, it is not comparable, nevertheless believes the Paris FC coach. We still have solutions even if Khalid (Boutaïb, victim of a rupture of the cruciate ligaments) won’t be back until December. It’s especially annoying for Warren Caddy and Pierre-Yves Hamel. It will further set back the adaptation of Pierre-Yves. We know that he would like to conclude (Editor’s note: he has not scored since December 2020). But there is no doubt about it. I hope it will come back fresh and find the click. We are also waiting for others to take over in front. »
Chergui and Lasne also absent against Rodez
Morgan Guilavogui (2 goals this season) should thus be used as a center forward during the absences of Caddy and Hamel. He underwent groin surgery in June and seems to be free of the physical issues that bothered him at the end of last season. “Until now, we are a bit lacking in efficiency, continues Laurey. We are not worried. It’s good to get chances but it would be even better if we could score more. »
Against Rodez on Saturday (7 p.m. in Charléty), in addition to Hamel and Caddy, Paris FC will also be deprived of Paul Lasne and Samir Chergui (suspended). On the bench in Grenoble, Maxime Bernauer and Cyril Mandouki will find a starting place. The South African Lebobang Phiri injured in the calf during the 1st day at Sochaux is fit to return. “We have not yet decided if he will be on the bench or if he will play an entire match in N3 with the reserve”, specifies Laurey.
