With 20 assists on the LFP counter, Branco van den Boomen scored this Ligue 2 season. The Dutchman equaled the record for assists in a season (Zinedine Ferhat in 2017-2018 with Le Havre) and broke the record for assists from a set piece which until then belonged to Teji Savanier (12 assists from set pieces with Nîmes).
Savannah then achieved the feat of becoming the best passer in Ligue 1 in 2018/2019 (13 assists). Can VDB do this? « Oh, did he do that? Wow! I don’t know him well, but he must be a hell of a player! I would like to imitate him, but I know it will be very difficult. I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself by setting such lofty goals! When you play in a championship with players like Messi or Payet who deliver assists so easily, it would be presumptuous to say that I want to finish as the best passer next season, but I will do my best! » responded Van den Boomen on the official Ligue 2 website.
But before thinking about inscribing his name in the history of the L1, the TFC midfielder will have to clarify his future, he who is being courted and is demanding a contract extension accompanied by a significant increase in Damien Comolli.
