Nancy defender Helder ready to face PSG following eight-match ban
Nancy defender Helder Ferreira is looking forward to potentially facing Paris Saint-Germain after serving an eight match ban.
Helder, 24, was suspended earlier this season after insulting a referee during a meeting of the French Football Federation (FFF).
However, Helder is now available to coach Jean Fernandez, after what has been a difficult period for the Brazilian.
He said: "I must admit that this period was very difficult, I think this is the most difficult period of my career.
"You train every day but you cannot do anything on the weekend, it's hard.
"But this has done me a lot of good, especially mentally, so I'm ready to play when the coach calls me."
Helder could face PSG at the Marcel Picot stadium tomorrow, which he believes to be a crucial game for Nancy.
"Everyone knows the qualities of PSG so if we manage to win or play well, we will directly find confidence to make us a force in this league," he added.
"We are all too aware of the importance of this meeting and I must say that everyone wants to play that kind of game.
"The coach also knows the importance of this game so he has placed great emphasis on the desire to do well and especially to work, work, work."
The right-back also revealed his personal goal this season, which is to play more games for the club following just 10 appearances in Ligue 1 last season.
"Especially after the suspension, I really want to play. I want to show what I can do for my career and my family," Helder concluded.
