Coach Oliver Glasner (48) gave the all-clear for the 22-year-old after the Rhein-Main derby at 1. FSV Mainz 05 at the end of the season.

The SBU can therefore rely on the important French central defender in the final in Seville against Glasgow Rangers.

N’Dicka was injured and substituted midway through the second half of Saturday’s game. “It’s nothing serious. He had blisters on his feet and a bit of pain in training,” reported Glasner after the final whistle. The substitution was purely a precautionary measure.

In the duel with the Scottish runners-up next Wednesday in Seville, the Hessians are also hoping for the return of offensive player Jesper Lindström (22). The Dane suffered a thigh injury in Frankfurt’s semi-final first leg win at West Ham United.

“It’s looking pretty good. Everything is going according to plan,” said Glasner. Lindstrom is scheduled to start training again on Sunday.
