Barcelona defender Lucas Digne has hailed his friend, team-mate and compatriot Samuel Umtiti. Speaking to the magazine Equinox, Digne said Umtiti is recovering well from his injury.
"His recovery has started and he's going carefully, without hurrying. He's a great professional and he knows what he's doing."
Digne featured in the 2-0 UCL win over Sporting Lisbon. "The Champions League is the biggest competition that a player can play in. It's always motivating when you hear the song before the game. For me, it's great to play. I had a good game and we won. It was important to keep going unbeaten.
"Now we have difficult games before Christmas at Villarreal and the Bernabeu against Real Madrid, but we have to keep working like we've done since the start of the season. We'll see what happens."
