Already a big blow for FC Nantes before the match at the Vélodrome!

Olympique de Marseille will host FC Nantes at the Vélodrome this Saturday. For this meeting, one of the new players of the Canaries will not be available!

After two days of Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille will host FC Nantes at the Vélodrome. For this meeting, Igor Tudor will face the players of Antoine Kombouaré… But for the coach of the Canaries, a big blow has just fallen via a press release from the club.

Moussa Sissoko unavailable for 3 weeks

Indeed, FC Nantes announces the package of Moussa Sissoko for this meeting. The French international has been suffering from an injury for a few days in training. “A muscle injury to the hamstrings of the right leg” will keep him away from the field for about 3 weeks.

Kombouaré tries to put pressure on Kita

He should therefore miss the matches against OM, Toulouse and Strasbourg and will certainly be too fair for the reception of PSG at La Beaujoire… A blow for Antoine Kombouaré who had recently railed against the lack of recruitment in the workforce of the FC Nantes.

“I will be very clear with you. Today I want zero starts, above all I need finishes. The group wants arrivals. It’s in all of our interests. We have discussed enough and we know that today we need reinforcements above all. I don’t want my team to weaken” Antoine Kombouaré – Source: Press conference

Kita’s response to Kombouaré

Waldermar Kita answered him in the columns of L’Equipe on Monday.

“It’s classic, I’m used to it. The coach is worried but the first person worried is me. We must not forget that the market does not move much and that it is the same in all clubs. (…) Sometimes, coaches and leaders don’t have the same way of seeing things: for us, it’s in the long term; them, it’s every Sunday. (…) After the match, I told him that we were going to try to take two or three players. I am ready to buy but not to buy to buy. If I’m offered a player at €20m and I don’t think it’s for us, I’ll say no. Me, I’m a big boy, I’ve been in football for 20 years. I don’t need to show that I take initiatives or that people put pressure on me. It doesn’t work with me. You have to be correct” Waldemar Kita – Source: The Team (15/08/22)
