Huysegems trained for around ninety minutes and he appeared most concerned with sparing his ankle. ‘The ankle is swollen and it’s still painful, but it’s not serious,’ confirmed the player. ‘Right now I don’t think I’ll be able to play against Bremen, but I’m not ruling it out. I have to rest my ankle now, then it will better tomorrow.’
Feyenoord trained in outstanding conditions again Wednesday. Catselen was the only player to train separately under the Anatolian sun. The outside right did train with the ball again however and feels that he is making progress.
