Nuno Mendes in danger of missing Friday's game at Angers

PSG will face Ligue 1 bottom-dwellers Angers on Friday and they received good news earlier this week when Marco Verratti returned to training sessions with the rest of the Paris Saint-Germain group.

The news popping up on Wednesday wasn't as encouraging, though, as another man went down injured and couldn't train with the rest of the PSG players.

Christophe Galtier was able to count on the return of Marco Verratti to training this week, but the French manager had to do with Nuno Mendes missing Wednesday's session at Camp des Loges

The Portugal international and PSG left-back was left to rest two days before the trip to Angers for MD32 of the league campaign that Paris will play on the road at the Stade Raymond Kopa.

The defender already experienced some muscle pain in the game against Lens last weekend, and the medical and coaching staff of PSG deemed it better for him to rest on Wednesday and try alone inside the facilities instead of with the rest of the group.

It is still unknown if Nuno Mendes and even Marco Verratti will be available for Galtier and fit enough to appear on Friday's game, though, with both returning on missing sessions so close to the early-kick-off game of MD32.

The Parisian contingent didn't feature French right-back Timothee Pembele on Wednesday's training session, either, as the youngster kept on working on strengthening his knee after getting injured a few days ago.

None of Neymar, Presnel Kimpembe, and Nordi Mukiele will return this year with season-ending injuries bringing an early end to their campaigns, while Renato Sanches is expected to remain out for at least a few more weeks with the probability of eventually getting shut down.

Juan Bernat's status is also a bit unknown with the Spanish defender missing time of late too.
