He is doing well, very well.
He had a specific training programme on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with Tottenham. The club and their coach, Andre Villas-Boas, took the decision not to let him play yesterday.
Today, he will train separately with Franck Raviot because he was not with us yesterday. Tomorrow, he will participate normally in the session.

France are unhappy with the seeding system FIFA intend to implement ahead of next week's World Cup play-off draw.
Eight teams including France will go into the draw, but four of those sides will be seeded and Les Blues are unlikely to be one of them owing to a poor FIFA ranking.

French Federation president Noel Le Graet believes this is unfair because they had one less country to play against during qualification.

Australia have sacked coach Holger Osieck following their 6-0 thumping by France at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Friday night.

France head coach Didier Deschamps has handed a late call-up to 18-year-old St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma for the upcoming matches against Australia and Finland.
Zouma had initially been selected for the France Under-21 squad by coach Willy Sagnol but steps up to the seniors "to cover for any eventuality", the French Football Federation announced on its website.
The uncapped youngster made his league debut as a 16-year-old in 2011 and has become a regular presence in his club side.
