“He will play 15 minutes at most,” Koeman warned on Saturday. “The important thing is to recover the player well, especially not to hurry,” said the technician at a press conference. “He still needs a lot to get him back to his previous form. He will not be able to find it in two games, in two weeks… it will take time, and we have to be patient and help the player. He is the most important. If he is fully recovered in November, it will be in November. If it can be before, so much the better, but it will depend on his condition, ”Koeman said.
