Rudi Garcia does not believe the injury suffered by Marseille winger Florian Thauvin against Athletic Bilbao is serious.
Thauvin was carried from the field on a stretcher during Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League victory, prompting fears the winger had broken his ankle.
The 25-year-old has been one of the stars of Marseille’s season, scoring 16 Ligue 1 goals and providing 13 assists for his side.
And Garcia is hopeful Thauvin’s injury is not too serious ahead of next week’s second leg in Bilbao.
“Thauvin received a big bruise, but nothing is broken,” Garcia said.
“We’ll wait till tomorrow for more information.”
