Back on the Nantes bench since last March, Antoine Kombouaré won the match for the Canaries on Sunday. The coach is now urging his leaders to recruit to navigate calmer waters next season.

Mission accomplished for Antoine Kombouaré. Appointed in March to replace Jocelyn Gourvennec, the coach managed to keep Nantes in Ligue 1 despite the defeat against Lille (1-2) on Sunday. Strasbourg’s victory against Metz (2-1) made the Canaries’ task easier and relieved the technician who immediately sent messages to his leaders to recruit this summer. He notably addressed his president Waldemar Kita, with whom he does not get along, as he himself admitted.

“If President Kita lets me work for two years…”

“Incredible,” he said twice. “We are maintained despite this defeat and despite this record which will haunt my nights for a long time, nine consecutive defeats (at home), we are maintained thanks to the victory of my friends from Strasbourg (the first club where he coached in 2003- 2004, Editor’s note). Beyond having maintained the club, telling myself that I will work for two years here, if President Kita lets me work for two years… But I left for it.”

“When we talk about work, obviously, it’s to improve the team,” he continued. “You can’t play it safe every year, one day you’re going to end up falling but that’s life. If you play stupid all the time, at one point you’re punished and that’s what can We are in our 11th season in a row in Ligue 1 but the last three or four, we have not been far from the trap, we have to be very careful. The idea is to recruit so that we can do it. a slightly quieter season.”

Since his appointment in March ten months after his ouster from the Nantes bench, Kombouaré has won two victories and two draws (three defeats) in the league to offer his team the continuation. All these points were gleaned away from Beaujoire where Nantes remains on nine consecutive losses in the league (ten including the one against Laval in the Coupe de France).
