Nantes: Kombouar? towards a start, Kita promises him a good transfer window

In disagreement with his superior Waldemar Kita, FC Nantes coach Antoine Kombouar is heading instead for a departure this summer. For his part, the owner and president wishes to keep his coach and says he is ready to make an effort on the transfer market.

Nantes: Kombouar

After the victory in the Coupe de France, Waldemar Kita wants to keep Antoine Kombouar.

In order to avoid disturbing his group before such an important meeting, Antoine Kombouar waited until after the Coupe de France final to empty his bag.

Despite the euphoria of victory over Nice (1-0) on Saturday, the FC Nantes coach left doubts hanging over his future because of tensions with his president Waldemar Kita.

Kombouar rather leaving

The two men are obviously not on the same wavelength. Hence the need for them to talk at the end of the season.

According to the daily L’Equipe, the discussion will surely lead to two possibilities for Kombouar: an extension of his lease which expires in 2023, or a departure this summer. And at the present time, the Kanak would rather lean towards the second hypothesis. A disturbing trend for Kita, eager to continue the adventure with the technician who saved the club from the descent last season.

Kita holds her trainer

Dj, he has a one-year contract. The championship is not over, we have to wait a bit to see if there is resignation or not. We will see later, tempted the Nantes owner on RMC, before evoking the words of Kombouar (see here). It is a lack of courtesy. If I took it the wrong way? We know very well that we are in football, some words are not intellectually mastered. If it calls into question its presence next season? Not at all.

The businessman will therefore have to find the right arguments to retain his coach, necessarily sensitive to the theme of the transfer window. Kita has indeed confirmed possible departures of important players. While promising quality recruitment to compete in the Europa League. We must give ourselves the means to make it work, announced the leader. We wouldn’t want to make ourselves look ridiculous, so automatically we need players.

The President’s promises

(…) There may be a momentum that will pick up again. We can build something very strong, he considered. I believe that there is a turnover which is taking place. Maybe we’ll set other goals. (…) With the European Cup, there are also players who will want to come to us. It’s both ways. Let’s be positive. After such a speech, Kombouar and the supporters will expect action.
