Asked Wednesday in L’Equipe du Soir, Yvan Le Meethe agent of Marcin Bulkathe goalkeeper of OGC Nice, spoke of his player’s surprise when he signed Kasper Schmeichel, the former Leicester goalkeeper and Danish international. The agent of the Polish player, loaned to the Gym last season, explains that he had joined the Aiglons after having had the assurance of starting the new exercise with a starting status. However, the arrival of Schmeichel changed the game.
Yvan Le Mée, Marcin Bulka’s agent: “The surprise was there, of course. This is the history of football, in a week everything can change. We had discussed beforehand with Christophe Galtier and Julien Fournier, and Marcin (Bulka) had to attack the starting season, or they had to take an experienced boy and share the playing time. But obviously, with the investment that the club did on (Kasper) Schmeichel it gets a little complicated. We spoke with them, with Ineos, the new leaders. They see Marcin as the long-term number 1 because he is a talented player who played for Chelsea and PSG. But the problem is that the boy wants to play this year, and that was what we discussed with the leaders a few weeks ago.
If we had not exercised the option in Nice, Marcin could have been number 2 in Paris, we had discussed it with PSG before the exercise of the option. We exercised the option because we had the insurance, even if you can’t be sure of anything in football, to play. And today we will certainly find ourselves number 2 in Nice when we could have been in Paris Saint-Germain.
Afterwards, it is up to the club to be smart, and we are having discussions about this, these are people who are thinking about the future at Ineos, the coach must give Marcin Bulka some playing time, beyond the Cup of France. He also took them to the final of the Coupe de France last season, he was very good every time he played, and since the start of the season Schmeichel has not worked miracles. So we still have to manage to give space and playing time to a young player who is still 22 years old. We saw it with Ter Stegen or Buffon and so many others, when there is talent, there is talent, it’s not a matter of age. »
