“If our success sends Saint-Étienne to L2, too bad for them”

Zapping Foot National Top 10 Gambardella Cup winners

Despite the defeat (2-3) last night against OL, the Nantes season has been successful. A victory in the Coupe de France, and a 9th place in the standings before the last day of Ligue 1, few would have predicted it last season when Nantes played in the play-offs to maintain themselves.

“We don’t ask anything of others”

This season again, the Canaries will be intimately linked to the play-offs. Indeed, as part of the J38, the FCN receives the ASSE. The Greens occupy 19th place and a result is imperative in order to hope to play the play-offs, and thus remain in the elite. But for Kombouaré, there’s no question of taking this match lightly: “We’re going to try to make up for it with the reception of Saint-Etienne, by having a big party all together with our supporters. I’m not playing to send people to the League 2 but to win matches. If they have to keep winning, it’s because they’ve had a great match”, warned the Kanak at a press conference before adding: “We won’t give away. I’ve never been given a gift in life so we’re going to play the match with the utmost seriousness with the ambition of winning for ourselves first. Afterwards, if our success sends Saint-Etienne to Ligue 2, too bad for them, it’s life. We don’t ask anything from others, we go for our results.” The tone is set for a match that should not be missed under any circumstances.
