Antoine Kombouaré (Nantes) is “worried” and will “shake” until the end of the transfer window

A week after the defeat in the Trophée des Champions against PSG (0-4), Nantes began their Ligue 1 campaign with a trip to neighboring Angers. In a press conference, Antoine Kombouaré said he was satisfied with the players he had at his disposal. “The squad I have today, when the Championship starts, I’m very happy with it. We have nothing to complain about, we are happy to have a good group, a solid group, where there is quality. »

But with the Europa League to be contested in addition this season, it is not certain that the current group will be enough to hold out over time. “With the sequence of competitions, it will be very complicated if we have injuries, suspensions, poor forms, recognized the coach of the Canaries. But today, we have the workforce to do the month of August. »

“This transfer window that ends on September 1 is bullshit. For all the coaches, the ideal would be for it to stop at the start of the Championship”

Moreover, Kombouaré is aware that some players may still leave the club in the coming weeks. The technician first castigated the duration of the transfer market, too long for his taste: “This transfer window that ends on September 1 is bullshit. For all the coaches, the ideal would be for it to stop at the start of the Championship”.

However, he does not want to fall into catastrophism and particularly welcomes the attitude of Ludovic Blas that Lille would keep enlisting: “He is there Ludo (blah), he is present, he is happy and he is ready to play on Sunday. There are also plenty of other cases for which it can happen, so we’ll see what happens. I do not hide from you that I am worried, we can even tremble until September 1st”.
