i'm going to translate. at least now it's clear coming from TP's mouth.
Tony, how did you live this forced trip to SA ?
I went to the US very angry about this obligation. To see the french NT win against Italy helped me to calm down a little bit. In SA, the Spurs staff saw my ankle was fine.
Do you think you went back in SA for nothing ?
This story will help the french NT in his relationship with the NBA teams. I went to SA with the osteopath, Fabrice Gauthier, who kept on treating me on the plane. In SA, the spurs medical staff let Gauthier work and checked his method. The spurs were convinced about the quality of the french medical staff. After an examination, they asked me to train normally. I said them that i won't come back. If it's to hear that everything is OK, what's the point of all this ? If i kept on treating in France instead of going to SA, i could have played in Italy.
After that, he talks about the french NT and says he has to fit in this team who was good against Italy.
Will you play against Finland, saturday in Pau ?
It's a big game, but there is a very big one against Italy in height days too. and if we suceed, there will be the finals (2 games end of august) and the nine games of the Euro in Poland. I have to think about a progressive come back. i'm tired from the 30 hours of flight in five days. I'll try friday night with an intensive training. If my ankle isn't swelled, i'll play against Finland. The spurs would like me to miss this game too. we'll see. what is sure is that i won't play 40 minutes. I still feel a discomfort which is logical after an ankle sprain.
