Nabil Fekir has allayed fears over his fitness and insisted he will be available for Lyon’s Champions League clash against Manchester City on Tuesday.
Fekir was taken off at half-time of the Ligue 1 derby clash against Saint-Etienne on Friday with an adductor injury, sparking concerns he could miss the midweek Group F game with Pep Guardiola’s City.
But the France international said: “Everything is fine, I’m recovering.
“We had some trouble in the first half but the most important thing is the victory. I’ll be there on Tuesday.”
Lyon won the game 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal from Belgium defender Jason Denayer to move up to second in the table.
