The news are not very reassuring, I thought he had decided to postpone his comeback because he wanted to be sure that he would be perfectly fit, but he still is in pain, actually:
He says it's the toughest injury he's had in his career because it's very difficult to define and target the problem, he would have preferred a fracture which takes 6 months to recover. (Llodra said the same last year about his groin injury, he said the pain never completely disappears). One day he feels fine, the next day he's in pain again. He's been training for one month and a half without moving too much. He keeps saying to himself "allez, forget about the pain", but it's like he always puts the brake on then. His coach Malcor hopes he will be able to get over it.
It's getting better, though, he says the 3 months of physical training with Olivier Choupeau have brought huge improvement. "I have to accept playing through the pain until it disappears".
