FC Nantes – ASSE: Kombouaré will have no mercy for the Greens

Zapping Goal! soccer club FC Nantes: top 10 of the best scorers in Ligue 1 history

While he admits a bit of frustration at losing to Lyon (“We have the feeling that there was room to come and get a result here”), Antoine Kombouaré took responsibility after the defeat, believing not “having lined up the best team on paper”:

“We had Pallois on the bench, Moutoussamy on the bench. I had to take out Kolo Muani and Moses Simon because they had some minor issues. We took care of the physical. That’s why I say that I am responsible for this defeat.

“We will not give gifts”

The Kanak assures him: he wants to catch up with ASSE next Saturday on the last day… And too bad if that condemns the Greens to Ligue 2:

“I don’t play to send the opponent to Ligue 2. I play to win matches. If they have to maintain themselves by coming to win with us, it means that they will have played a big game. We will not give gifts. Me, I’ve never been given gifts in my life. We will play seriously, with determination. Afterwards, if there is a victory and they go down to Ligue 2, it will be too bad for them. We don’t give anything to people, we look for the result. Last year, we were in this situation by finishing 18th and our maintenance owes nothing to anyone.

Kombouaré will go all out!

Present at a press conference at the end of OL – FC Nantes (3-2), Antoine Kombouaré was expeditious on the evening match, already turning to the last one at home against ASSE. The Kanak is motivated and will show no quarter against the Greens.
