The FC Nantes coach commented in his own way on Ludovic Blas’ desire to leave the Canaries to join Lille.
Decisive scorer in the Coupe de France final against Nice a few months ago (1-0), Ludovic Blas will leave an indelible mark in the history of the FC Nantes. But it is known that love stories end badly, in general… And the adage could be verified with the transfer of the playmaker in the days to come. Ludovic Blas absolutely wants to join Lille before the end of this summer transfer window. Problem, his trainer, Antoine Kombouaré, closes the door twice.
Kombouaré cash: “Lille doesn’t even make the European Cup, I don’t understand! »
With his usual frankness, the technician did not hesitate to deliver the substance of his thoughts, affirming that he absolutely did not understand the choice of his technical leader.
“I’m only talking about the sporting aspect. For me, sportingly, it’s unthinkable to see Ludo leave, launched Kombouaré at a press conference. Even less in Lille, if this is the case. Everyone told me it was Lille. That’s not a sports project in my opinion. They finished 10th behind us and above all, they don’t make the European Cup! You have to explain to me! On the sporting level, I said ‘no start’. This concerns Ludo but also Alban Lafont or Moses Simon. »
This is not the first time that Antoine Kombouaré has conveyed this message. A week ago, the FC Nantes coach had already proclaimed his desire to keep his strong men while calling for additional reinforcements. What its president Waldemar Kita had answered him, without appeal: “The pressure with me, it does not work…”.
