Polish OM striker Arkadiusz Milik, injured for several months, and goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who replaced recently, could play Thursday night against Galatasaray in the Europa League. At least that’s what Jorge Sampaoli suggested on Wednesday.
It has been a common thread at OM since the start of the season. At almost every conference, Jorge Sampaoli is entitled to a question on Arek Milik’s return to competition, and another on Pau Lopez-Steve Mandanda competition, or the recent non-use of the French porter.
This Wednesday, the question brought the two together. And the Polish striker, who has still not played since his injury to a meniscus at the end of last season, and the French international, remained on the sidelines for the last five games. Two men who are hungry for the game, and who could be revived Thursday night against Galatasaray in the Europa League.
