Ronald Koeman has issued an update on Clement Lenglet’s injury.
The defender came down with an ankle injury during the 4-0 Osasuna win on Sunday – and Koeman hopes that won’t keep him off the pitch for too long.
“I have spoken with the doctor and it seems we will have to wait for tomorrow for tests, but it does not seem that that serious,” he told reporters. “I don’t know about Wednesday’s game but I hope it’s nothing major.”
“I told him that he played really well, but he lost the ball two times in areas where you cannot lose it,” he added. “We spoke about that. One poor touch can lead to a chance for the opponent. You can have a good game, but two mistakes can cost you the match. He has to learn and improve.”
“Our situation in the table is still very complicated, we are quite a few points behind,” he said. “We have six games, four at home, between now and the end of the year. We cannot lose more.
“If a team is not playing well it can be complicated, we saw that with Real Madrid yesterday. Atletico are very strong and at the moment they are not failing, but a lot can still happen.”
