Pushed to the bench by Jorge Sampaoli last season at OM, Steve Mandanda has had a string of good performances since his arrival in Rennes this summer. What give him hope of being called up to the France team this Thursday for the friendly matches at the end of the month?
« A hope, I don’t know, » replied the 37-year-old doorman to L’Equipe. “Honestly, until this question, I did not necessarily ask myself. It’s always an honor to be in the France team, it would be if I’m there, but now it’s not the most important either. I know that to be able to find this group, I have to perform well with my club, that’s what I’m trying to do, and then we’ll see. »
Steve Mandanda has so far played all of Stade Rennes’ matches this season, except for two due to a knee injury. The Bretons also welcome Fenerbahçe this Thursday (9 p.m.) on behalf of the second day of the Europa League.
