One thing is certain, the Berri will not win all of their matches. But in such a championship which often looks like a marathon, the key is to be as regular as possible. and of course lose as little as possible. This Berri will be expected at each trip but the supporters of Avranches Mont-Saint-Michel and the few Berrichons supporters who will be present in the stands of the René Fenouillère stadium, will not see the first steps of the latest star recruit Nolan Roux.
Nolan Roux and Ilyas Chouaref are absent but Yannick M ‘Bonné and Jonathan Méxique are back
He is qualified specifies Marco Simone, his trainer but he is not yet ready: « For having had a discussion with him, he is not ready for 45 minutes. On the other hand, on the cardiac side, everything is ok, on the muscular side there is still a little work. Our goal, as we will replay on Monday 23 August at Gaston-Petit against Le Mans (6:45 p.m.) and as after Avranches, we have ten days to prepare, the idea is that Nolan (Roux) starts at home against the Mans. » Ilyas Chouaref will also be absent. Slightly unwell this week, he should also be back in the group at the reception of Manceaux. Note the return, after his suspension from a match, of captain Yannick M ‘Bonné. As for Jonathan Mexico, the former captain of Cholet, he is also back after an injury contracted in training camp.
Marco Simone: « They are a team that love to play so we should see a great football game. »
« We obviously observed the Normans during their first match at Créteil. It’s a team that obviously likes to play. Then we should see a nice football match« specifies Marco Simone, Castelroussin coach. Avranches Mont-Saint-Michel for his part finished his championship last season in thirteenth place out of eighteen. The Norman leaders at the time, have muscular a little like Châteauroux, their offensive sector with the arrival of Florian Bianchini from Amiens, a promising player, or even the very experienced David Pollet from Gazélec d’Ajaccio, not to mention central defender Yhoan Baret from Guingamp.
Anyway, the Berri who took care of his entry into this third division championship will once again be the favorite.. Facing a playing team and on a lawn announced in perfect condition, these two playing teams should put on a show.
