XV of France: Antoine Dupont joined the Blues in the night


Highlights: Antoine Dupont returned to training with the Blues on Sunday. The captain had been out for ten days with a broken jaw. He arrived at the Renaissance Hotel in Aix-en-Provence at 1 am. No collective training at the moment, just cycling and weight training. The presence, or not, of Dupont on the sidelines to watch his teammates, will be scrutinized. The Blues take on Ligue 1 rivals Marseille in a friendly on Sunday at 2.30pm.

Watched all day Saturday by journalists and supporters, the captain of the Blues did not reach Aix-en-Provence until 1 am.

He took his time. And, perhaps that was the goal, escaped the journalists and supporters who watched for his arrival for much of the day in front of the Renaissance Hotel in Aix-en-Provence. They attended all afternoon and early evening the return of the Blues, Gaël Fickou, the first to return to the fold at the end of the two days off granted by the staff, to the pillars of La Rochelle, Uini Atonio and Reda Wardi, the last... except Antoine Dupont.

His return to his teammates, ten days after his broken jaw, was announced for Saturday. It was carried out... Sunday since the captain of the Blues arrived at the hotel shortly after 1 am. At the end of a four-hour car ride, as revealed by Midi Olympique.

No collective training at the moment

Antoine Dupont had been authorized Friday by the surgeon who operated on his maxillozygomatic fracture, Professor Lauwers, to "resume a progressive physical activity directed". No question, at first, to find the field. Cycling and a little weight training are only on the program for the moment.

The Blues, they will resume this Sunday the path of training. First, in the morning, by a session of clarity (repetition of combinations while walking), then, at 17:15, by a training at the Georges Carcassonne stadium in Aix-en-Provence. The presence, or not, of Antoine Dupont on the sidelines to watch his teammates, will be scrutinized.
