Auxerre defender Stephane Grichting is back to full fitness after a month and a half out.Auxerre defender Stephane Grichting is back to full fitness a month and a half after being injured in the aftermath of the Turkey and Switzerland World Cup play-off match in Istanbul.
The 26-year-old, who sustained a urinary canal perforation during the tunnel bust-up, could now be available for the visit of Nancy on Saturday.
Grichting has admitted he has been affected by the incident but is looking forward to playing again.
"Mentally, I will only be back to my best the day I will play again," Grichting said.
"The first five days after the injury were a real martyrdom, I was so down. Today I feel better and being onto the pitch again helps to forget.
"The Fifa sanctions will be set in January or February. Since I gave the case to my lawyer, I try to leave it aside," he added.
