15 Ligue 1 teams return to training, despite ongoing World Cup

L’Équipe report that 15 Ligue 1 clubs have now resumed training after a short World Cup break. Olympique Lyonnais’ players returned on Friday, and have been joined by 14 other teams on Monday. 

SCO Angers, Auxerre, Stade Brestois, Clermont Foot, RC Lens, Lille OSC, FC Lorient, Olympique de Marseille, AS Monaco, Montpellier Hérault SC, OGC Nice, Stade de Reims, Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace and ESTAC Troyes all returned to training on Monday. 

FC Nantes will return on Tuesday, Stade Rennais FC will return on Wednesday, AC Ajaccio and Toulouse FC will return on Thursday and Paris Saint-Germain will be the final team to return. Whilst the exact date is yet to be revealed, L’Équipe reveal that the reigning Ligue 1 champions will return between the 5th and 7th of December. 

Many clubs including Lyon, Reims and Monaco are leaving for warm-weather training in Spain. Lyon manager Laurent Blanc has promised his side “a very high level of athletic preparation.” Troyes’ players return to training under a new coach, Patrick Kisnorbo, following the sacking of Bruno Irles. At Angers, the players will train under interim coach Abdel Bouhazama following the sacking of Gérald Baticle last week.
