Lille defender Mathieu Debuchy played 70 minutes in Lille’s pre-season friendly against Rennes tonight, and afterwards the Newcastle target was once again told he’s not going anywhere.
After the match, Lille boss Rudi Garcia said:
“Mathieu was good. It was important to play 70 minutes for him.
“He will have to digest the fact that the club does not want to release him and he has no choice in the matter.
“It is important that he does well for us, for himself and for the France team.”
