A batch of "Courage Noss" (Chin up Noss) t-shirts had been ordered specially at the initiative of the players and staff, who have been upset by the young midfielder's bad luck. With the agreement of the LFP, the players sported the t-shirts during the warm-up.
Touched by the sentiment, "Noss" was quick to respond on Twitter. Having undergone surgery performed by Dr Cermolace in Marseille in midweek, the Malian international is recovering well from his ankle injury and returned to the Principality on Thursday to continue his convalescence.
Merci au club et à mes coéquipiers pour ce message d'encouragement, ça me fait chaud au cœur! ✌ #AllezMonaco— Adama Noss Traoré (@NossTraore) 16 October 2015
