No more doubts, Antoine Kombouaré announces that he wants to stay at the club next season

Doubts are swept away. At least officially. In a press conference this Thursday noon before the final day of Ligue 1, Antoine Kombouaré said he wanted to continue on the bench of FC Nantes next season. A year that will see the Canaries compete in the Europa League because of their success in the Coupe de France.

“I decided to continue the adventure, to complete my contract. The first reason is that there is a fantastic challenge next year, a year with four runs, I want to experience that. It’s going to be hot, it’s going to be tough, but it’s a great challenge. The other reason is to find myself there leading FC Nantes for a European Cup, the Europa League. “He adds:” Even if I was ready to slam everything, with reflection, with my family, and then the discussion I had with the president, now that’s it I’m ready, I’m in it. »

“There are times when we argue, like in a family”

Antoine Kombouaré explained that he had put things straight with his hierarchy. “With the president we had discussions and, afterwards, there is always the most important thing for me: the actions. So we’ll see. But it’s like in a family, there are times when we fight a little, times when we don’t talk to each other. It’s not the most important. The most important thing is that we continue to work and that we all want to pull in the same direction. During this same press conference, captain Alban Lafont confirmed that Antoine Kombouaré had announced to the players this Thursday morning that he would stay at FCN next season.

As a reminder, the Kanak coach had confided, just after the cup victory at the Stade de France, his relationship difficulties with President Waldemar Kita. “It is true that under the presidency of Kita, it was not easy for the supporters. They did like me, they compartmentalised. I don’t always get on very well with the president. But I put aside, and what interests me is to wear the colors of FC Nantes. “He also added the same evening:” I paid my debt to FC Nantes. No one can claim anything from us. »
