Benjamin Mendy was treated to personalized training on Friday morning alongside the physiotherapist, Jean-Georges Cellier.

After injuring his right front leg hamstring in Lorient, Benjamin Mendy is almost ready to get back on track. He should probably be available for the trip to Bastia. Meanwhile, the Olympic right-back is always working hard to go back to the best shape he can. From 10:30, Mendy packed the upper field of the center Robert Louis-Dreyfus to get down with some physical exercises alongside his physiotherapist, Jean-Georges Cellier. He has practiced slow, fast and bent supports among others. Benjamin Mendy has also touched the ball, as he made some trips with it. He has also tracked some covering by using the medicine ball. He completed his training day with some speedups over short distances.
During the session, Jean-Georges Cellier kept encouraging the Olympic defender. Benjamin Mendy has, meanwhile, felt no pain and he reassured his physiotherapist: "I feel very good".
