"I'm very happy, I'm feeling great,” said Cédric. “It was a tough injury, but now I'm feeling good. I was training with the lads, so I'm feeling 100 per cent now.

"Everybody hates to be injured, but I go really crazy. I hate to be injured. I wanted to help the team, to be with my colleagues inside the pitch, to help them get the win, and of course it's frustrating when you are out and you cannot help the team. But now I'm fit and that's the most important thing.

"I don't know yet who is going to play, but I'm ready to help my teammates to win, to get the win, because it's what we work for every day is to go on the pitch, play well and to give a win to our fans.”
