Max To Miss Walsall

Last updated : 19 April 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Max Gradel is to miss the trip to Walsall to take care of family matters back in France. Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, manager Kevin Bond is quoted as saying: "I certainly hope we haven't seen the last of him. He went back to France after the Bristol Rovers game and I was aware he needed to go at some stage before the end of the season. Irrespective of anything else, his family must come first. We recognise it is important so he won't be with us for the Walsall game. He needs to take care of his brother and sister and hopefully he can get everything resolved as soon as possible. Nobody is keener than Max to help us on the pitch. He's been away before and rushed back and his professionalism and enthusiasm have been excellent".
