Laurent Boissier, sports activities coordinator of Angers SCO: “It is beginning to get heavy”

“What did you want concerning the profiles of Cédric Hountondji and Abdallah Sima?
These are pretty confirmed gamers, each Cédric along with his good seasons in Clermont and Abdallah along with his splendid 12 months within the Czech Republic (Slavia Prague) and that in England (on mortgage to Stoke Metropolis). It will be disrespectful for him to say that Cedric is a bet. He’s an skilled participant, final 12 months he held the protection with nice respect, he was voted among the many finest defenders by way of duels in Europe. Abdallah was a profile of depth, of pace that Gérald (Baticle, the coach) I wished. He’s full, able to taking part in in numerous offensive positions, with a great head play.

“The sale? I do not actually care. I am not right here for the Individuals, for the British, for the Russians or for the Poles. I am right here for Angers SCO, to work.”

Does the prospect of 4 runs on the finish of the season change the method to the championship?
Completely nothing adjustments. At first we do not take gamers to calculate whether or not we are going to go down or change into champions, we take them as a result of we predict they’re good. After we assault a season, I wish to be champion, I do not look again. After I do not get out of the asylum, I am not loopy. In any case, when my group enters the sphere, it’s to win video games and to be revered. We should get much more respect this 12 months and go as excessive as potential. Inevitably, for golf equipment like us with a a lot decrease price range than others, we put you within the cart. We have been already put in a cart final 12 months, we will probably be put again in a cart this 12 months. The nice factor is that a few of us are used to it. We all know what to do and how you can do it. I’ve very robust religion in my group, my coach and our workforce, and I am certain we may have a fantastic season.

Nick Sakiewicz, consultant of the American funding fund GFC, got here to Saumur to look at the match towards Saint-Etienne (4-1) on 23 July. Since then, has there been any progress within the strategy of promoting the membership to the Individuals?
I do not actually care. I am not right here for the Individuals, for the British, for the Russians or for the Poles. I’m right here for the Angers SCO, to work, to do the very best and in addition to be environment friendly in my work. The remaining is just not my downside.

What’s going to the remainder of the switch window be? The coach asks for 2 defensive reinforcements. Are these circumstances progressing?
At present we’re conscious that we’ve got a necessity. It’s troublesome to have a season with two actual skilled defenders, Miha (Blazic) and Cédric (Hountondji). Batista (Mendy) might help however we’d like some additional defensive assist. I am not used to working in a rush, I am not in a rush. We cannot do something. The participant will arrive when he ought to arrive and when he has been validated by everybody.

You point out just one defender, towards two of the coach …
For now, it is going to be one. We is not going to renew the plethoric workforce that won’t be manageable for Gérald afterward (Baticella) and which can be annoying for us too. The coach should have already got the proper automobile to drive it properly. One other one is not going to be dangerous.

Final Tuesday Baticle appeared to say that the central defender had already been discovered and that “the setback” got here from the “different membership”. You affirm it as a result of there, to listen to you, he’s in no hurry …
I did not say we weren’t in a rush, I mentioned we would not do something. Time doesn’t run out, it presses slightly extra for the coach and it’s regular. Making gamers to make gamers, I do not know how you can do it. We take slightly extra time and agree to attend a bit and have a participant appropriate for everybody, particularly the supervisor.

“It will be good if we let ourselves work slightly peacefully, if we stopped continuously making an attempt so as to add gasoline to the hearth. “

However are you set on a gamer?
We’re fastened however it isn’t signed. We work, we work.

Are gamers nonetheless more likely to depart?
Each three days Ounahi, or Bentlaeb, or Sofiane Boufal leaves. I feel we’re very unfavorable round us. No person will depart. We should cease now! It will be good if we let ourselves work slightly quietly, if we stopped making an attempt on a regular basis so as to add gasoline to the hearth with bogus data. The gamers is not going to depart. The switch window is over.

Mortgage returns too?
I do not suppose I have been requested any questions on these gamers. Some, from the start, know very properly that they’re about to depart and have exit coupons (Diony, Bobichon, El Melali). There are others who do not.

“If we will put some positivity into all of this. I’ve the impression that for six months he has been unhappy right here. “

Has Paul Bernardoni’s state of affairs modified? You mentioned at the start that Yahia Fofana had began to be number one and we have been shocked to see Bernardoni depart for the final preparation match towards Spezia (2-2) …
This sort of query, I do not reply. That is Gerald (Baticola). At present Paul is within the three goalkeepers of the SCO and is superb.

And what about Sada Thioub? Despite the fact that the membership did not appear to depend on him, he was used quite a bit throughout the preparation …
Sada is used slightly extra immediately … If we will put slightly positivity into all of this. I’ve the impression that for six months he has been unhappy right here. It begins to get heavy. I really feel it from what I learn and from what I see, it begins to harass me. I would moderately speak concerning the optimistic issues concerning the membership, the opportunity of having recruited Sima, Hountondji, Blazic …, moderately than listening to from morning to nighttime issues which can be beginning to actually hassle me. We died with the DNCG, we died with the Individuals, we have been cooked in a sporty means. I really feel like we’re nonetheless standing. I want we have been slightly loyal to us at work, I haven’t got the impression that we’re too loyal. Possibly it might be okay if we went to Ligue 2, I do not know. Effectively, it would not go well with me. “
