RC Strasbourg Mercato: Anthony Caci’s adventure starts badly in Mainz

Indisputable holder over the last two seasons spent with RC Strasbourg, the central defender Anthony Caci had decided to leave Alsace in January to join the FSV Mainz in the Bundesliga. The 25-year-old versatile player therefore discovered the German championship at the end of the summer, but not everything went as planned.

First of all, the offseason preparation was more than complicated for the native of Forbach, since it was truncated by an injury. Then, Caci was able to return in time to play the first Bundesliga games with Mainz, but he surely did not expect to play … only 18 short minutes in five league games.

For the moment, the former Strasbourg player has only participated in one meeting: it was against Leverkusen more than a week ago (0-3 defeat).

I have been here for 11 years now. Racing is my club… It’s the one that gave me my chance, that made me grow as a player but also as a man”, was thus entrusted This in an interview for The 10 Sports.

If the door now seems closed for a return to Strasbourg, OM could be Anthony Caci’s future club. The Phocaeans closely followed the 25-year-old manager a year ago Foot Mercato, and should be mindful of his situation in the future.
