Chief doctor of FC Anji Andrey Grishanov stated, that after the Volga match several players of our team got injured, Grishanov also commented on Lacina Traore`s trauma.
- The match vs Volga turned out very rugged. Shortly after the match four players of our team - Gadzhibekov, Serderov, Burmistrov and Grigalava sought help from a doctor. Perhaps, that`s too much for one game. Now we must set the guys ready for the upcoming matches.
- After the Volga match Anji head coach stated, that Traore had injured. Could you give us more detailed information on it?
- It all started with the fact, that Traore desired to play vs Amkar in Perm, however, the medical check-up held in Belgium and Russia revealed, that his muscle hadn`t healed and we risked to damage it again.
That`s why we forbade him to take part in the match. Having received the invitation to the national team, we stated that the player is unable to plerform for medical grounds.
We sent them all the documents, results of medical checkup. Nonetheless, the national team`s coach replied, that Lacina had joined the team. We contacted their fitness coach and explained, that Traore must train on his individual programme. What was our surprise when we learnt that Lacina had a recurrence of his injury in the very first practice in the squares game! Now he needs to undergo the whole rehabilitation programme over again. Such a treatment to the player`s health utterly amazed us.
