Côte d’Ivoire and PSG defender Serge Aurier is a major doubt for Saturday’s final 2017 AFCON qualifier clash against Sierra Leone in Bouake after he was spotted leaving Stade Louis II on crutches on Sunday.
The defender has struggled to recover from a collision with Benjamin Mendy in PSG first defeat of the season to Monaco in the French Ligue 1.
French Coach Michel Dussuyer will also not have the service of skipper, Yayah Toure and his Manchester City teammate, Wilfred Bony.
Meanwhile, Coach Dussuyer has announced he will have decisive talks with Yayah Toure over his future for Ivory Coast. The midfielder was left out by the French coach and the gaffer has been quiet on this absence but explains that the series will come to an end.
"I had to talk with Yaya Touré. What I can say today is that we will have a meeting soon to discuss his future with the team selection," the former Guinea coach said on the Ivorian Federation website.
"I think everyone is waiting for this decision. I also know that it is important that things are addressed so that we can proceed peacefully. I think it ' is a situation that must find its epilogue. This event will be decisive for the rest of the immediate future of Yaya selection, "he said.
