French club AS Monaco have left out Nigeria defender Elderson Echiejile from their squad for Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League tie at Young Boys of Switzerland.
Elderson has been involved in Monaco pre-season build-up. Also missing is Tunisia centre-back Aymen Abdennour, who is undergoing serious transfer talks with AC Milan and Barcelona.
However, Mali U20 star Adama Traore, who joined from Lille for this season, made the cut for the trip to Switzerland. The overall winners of this matchup over two legs will qualify for the group stage of the competition
