The midfielder made his debut for the French side at the weekend in a 2-0 win over Guingamp and will feature in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier with Napoli on Tuesday.

Favre said, ”Wesley Sneijder has not trained much for clear reasons as he arrived late and Mario Balotelli was also injured.

”But both players have enough experience at this level and they will be able to help us in our goal to reach the Champions League group phase.”
