FC Nantes is playing a big game this Sunday with a trip to Strasbourg. In case of defeat, Waldemar Kita, the president of FCN should operate a facelift in the professional staff.
FC Nantes in danger at Strasbourg
FC Nantes could be back in Ligue 2 next season. With five games left in the season, FCN is in 19th place and is 4 points behind FC Lorient (17th). While the club already seems to have one foot in the second division, Antoine Kombouare still believes in maintaining the club, even if it means going through the playoffs. In this sense, winning in Strasbourg this Sunday seems imperative for the Canaries. Nantes faces RC Strasbourg (15th) in the 34th day of the championship. This match will be followed with attention by Waldemar Kita. The president of Nantes would already consider adjustments in case of a bad performance at La Meinau.
First departures already in the pipeline at FCN?
Emmanuel Merceron indeed assures that the president of FC Nantes intends to accelerate some departures in case of underperformance this Sunday. “It is whispered that the operation sales of the staff could accelerate next week in case of contrary results,” assured the insider on his Twitter account. In case of relegation, the FCN would have to register many departures. Some young players like Basila and Mendy (at the end of their contract) are certain to leave La Jonelière. Others with a high market value such as Ludovic Blas, Randal Kolo Muani or Imran Louza could be sold at the next market. As for Antoine Kombouare, he could finally be kept by Waldemar Kita in case of demotion as revealed by ESPN.
