FC Nantes signed a victory which took shape in both ends of the match. After an extraordinary goal from Girotto in added time in the first period, it was in money time that Ludovic Blas and Mostafa Mohamed took advantage of their numerical superiority to secure a big victory. However, this performance should not prevent the club from recruiting and several very specific defensive tracks are targeted.
FC Nantes had to innovate in defense after the injury of Nicolas Pallois. Indeed, deprived of the old Niortais, Antoine Kombouaré has decided to establish a very young Canary: Nathan Zeze. A great hope for the club who made a meteoric leap towards the professional world as a replacement for the former Nantes captain after his injury against AF Virois. The tenure against MHSC therefore sounded like a great reward for the young French U 19 international and immediately left its mark on the game., or rather suffered the mark of crampons from Wahbi Khazri since he was the victim of a high foot at neck height and had even kept track of the contact in the second half. A red card from Hérault later, Nathan Zeze had therefore tipped the meeting involuntarily.
A disputed case?
In reality, with the high-flying performance of Zeze at only 17 years old, the Nantes board is considering whether or not to recruit a central defender. In any case, the Nantes leaders are still thinking about different profiles capable or not of helping Antoine Kombouaré’s team. The last name noted is also that of an experienced Ligue 1 player, namely Damien Da Silva. Indeed, the Lyonnais is clearly on the start and the player would like to leave the ambient slump in Lyon. If he sees the interest of FC Nantes with a good eye, the former Clermontois would see himself well in MLS where he has wanted to play now for a few years. An arrival in line with those of Andy Delort and Florent Mollet, finalized in the coming days, which combine experience and performance, two keywords of Antoine Kombouaré’s football vision. However, Damien Da Silva seems much less efficient than his two potential teammates since the player seemed to be in great difficulty with OL. Indeed, the player lost his role in the rotation of the Lyon hinge and was used as a left side by Laurent Blanc for lack of other players capable of playing in this position. If the former Rennes player has not been ridiculous in this position, he already seems to be in early retirement and the desire of FC Nantes to attract him does not seem compatible with a player who wishes to end his beautiful and rich career quietly. on the side of the United States.
If the arrival of Damien Da Silva would be a guarantee of experience for a small sum, the performance of Nathan Zeze could have made the Nantes board think longer than expected and make them perceive the extraordinary quality of the French U19 champion with the Canaries. , in the previous season. A good integration into the professional group which is bearing fruit while waiting for those of Florent Mollet and Andy Delort… To be continued.
