[AMERICANS ABROAD]Sochaux presidentAlexandre Lacombe says it will be at least six more months before the French club will know where Charlie Davies is in his bid to return to top-flight soccer.

Speaking to the French newspaper L'Est Republicain on the one-year anniversary of the accident that almost took Davies' life and killed another passenger, Lacombesaid only time will tell.

"According to doctors," he said, "it will take at least 18 months from the date of the accident to hope for real progress and know more. It's a miracle he's still alive and doing well. Right now, Charlie isn't a Ligue 1-level player, that's for sure, but he continues to work hard ..."

Davies started his first game for the Sochaux "B" team in six weeks, contributing an assist in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Auxerre "B" team in France's CFA (fourth level).

In a separate development, the Associated Press reported that Davies was fined 750 euros ($1,040) and had his license suspended for six months after a car in which police found him sitting in the driver's seat was clocked going 125 mph in France’s Jura region in the early morning of Oct. 3.

Since news of the incident became public on Friday, Davies and Sochaux teammate Jacques Faty admitted Faty was driving the car owned by the French-born Senegal international and they switched seats to protect Faty.

According to Le Progres, Davies and Faty could face six months in prison and a 7,500-euro fine ($10,400) for switching seats and making a false statement to the police.
