Zapping Goal! soccer club FC Nantes: the results of coaches under the Waldemar Kita era
“The victory of FC Nantes in the final of the Coupe de France is undeniably a very, very beautiful story. And I am really happy with this outcome for Antoine Kombouaré who, let’s not forget all the same, was often criticized in the past, including in Nantes, for his results, his time spent on the golf course, his relationship with the managers of the training center and his gruff side. Result, Kombouaré saves the Canaries last season, obtains excellent results in Ligue 1 since then and won the Coupe de France, but what a pretty snub!
In addition, and this is also what must be emphasized, is that the technician from Nantes was unable to recruit last summer as he probably wanted. No, he was able to bring together the same players, with the same ideas and it worked. So we have to take our hats off to this whole group because not many people were expecting them at such a level.
“This is what worries me: it is that Nantes will be looted in the coming days.”
Afterwards, and the syndrome is unfortunately well known in Ligue 1, the very, very beautiful story should not end badly. And that everything that has been built and undertaken for months collapses. Let me explain: if Kombouaré no longer manages to work with Waldemar Kita, it will be complicated. This is why I am also waiting for a strong statement which lets us think that he is still in Nantes for many months.
Another concern: the workforce. We know that Kolo Muani has already signed in Frankfurt, we know that some players, who have shown themselves in recent weeks, will be approached and we know that Waldemar Kita will have to sell to balance the accounts. This is what concerns me: it is that Nantes will be looted in the next few days. And that Nantes cannot continue in this recovery. The future, in the very short term, will allow us to quickly answer our questions.”
Like every week, our consultant, Denis Balbir, deciphers the news of Ligue 1 and European football. We start this week with the coronation of FC Nantes, winner of the Coupe de France at the expense of OGC Nice with the score of 1-0.
