Montpellier HSC Mercato: Atletico Madrid missed out on a move to MHSC
After making his choice to join Montpellier HSC, the goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte made a surprising revelation about his adventure at Atletico.
And if Montpellier HSC gave itself the right to live a beautiful end of season? Currently 14th in Ligue 1, the Pailladin club is currently concerned by the relegation zone as it has only 4 points ahead of the first relegation zone, ESTAC Troyes. This is good news, as both teams will have the opportunity to explain themselves this Saturday.
ESTAC will host MHSC, with the firm ambition to give themselves some air at the end of the 24th day of Ligue 1. The club led by Patrick Kisnorbo is still on 3 consecutive defeats in the championship, conceding notably 11 goals. But Montpellier can’t really laugh about their situation, because theirs is not much better. Of course, there was a last success 3-0 last week against Brest. But before that, Michel Der Zakarian‘s men had two consecutive defeats against Strasbourg (0-2) and PSG (1-3).
Benjamin Lecomte almost snubbed Montpellier HSC for Atlético Madrid
For this match, Montpellier HSC decided to trust Benjamin Lecomte to keep his cage inviolate. Arrived free this winter after a stint at Atletico Madrid, the 31-year-old Goalkeeper spoke about his Spanish adventure to Team. And if he did not play any La Liga game with the Colchoneros, he keeps a very good memory of it: “When you just look at the numbers, you can say that I wasted my time at Atletico. But in fact not at all. I trained with great players. It has been an exceptional experience,” he began.
During the interview, Lecomte also said that he could have continued his career in Spain: “I even asked myself if, despite my non-existent playing time, I stayed there or not. I was really good there. I only regret not having played at least one game with this shirt” he added. Now, the former AS Monaco player is trying to relaunch his career at Montpellier, where he has started all the Ligue 1 games (4) since his arrival on January 26.
