Mamadou Doucouré was able to celebrate his comeback in a test match: the Gladbacher should be introduced slowly
Gladbach central defender Mamadou Doucouré is one of the most unlucky players in recent years. The Frenchman, who has been practically permanently injured in recent years, made his comeback in a friendly for the U23s.
Mamadou Doucouré has now been playing for six and a half years, but has only played two competitive games for the professional team so far. Even for the reserve team, he only made 24 appearances. The Frenchman missed most of the first half of the season due to a knee injury. Now the 24-year-old is finally ready for action again and was in the starting eleven in the friendly of the U23 selection against SSVg Velbert. He played through the first half as planned and was substituted at the break.
Doucouré should be introduced slowly
It is now up to the defender to slowly approach and carefully increase the workload. Unfortunately, it is still doubtful whether his body is made for professional football. His injuries have accumulated too much in the last six years. The player is tied to the Foals until 2024. Let’s hope that he and the club can finally enjoy working together. Stable fitness would be the most important basis. For a professional use, the Frenchman should not be up for debate in the next few weeks.
