Football: Laurent Peyrelade “very upset” after the departure of Adilson Malanda from Rodez

Before receiving Bordeaux this evening at 7 p.m., the Rodez coach returned to the departure of Adilson Malanda and regretted that the squad was too small. Its president has calmed things down by promising imminent arrivals.

It’s not every day that Rodez faces a giant of French football. And yet, there was very little mention of Bordeaux’s visit to Paul-Lignon on Saturday August 6 at 7 p.m. during the press conference the day before the match. President Pierre-Olivier Murat invited himself to speak after his coach, Laurent Peyrelade, which is always signed by a hot topic.

This time, it was a question of recruitment and the state of the workforce after the confirmed departure of Adilson Malanda to the United States and his loan finally canceled in Rodez. Contrary to what was initially announced by the Raf, the central defender does not remain in blood and or until the end of the calendar year. Something to irritate Laurent Peyrelade, who has only three defenders available at the moment. “The problem is that we lose a player a weekhe lamented. It’s starting to get complicated.”

Peyrelade: “We are getting poorer sportingly”

“A lot of things annoy mecontinued the technician. That we recruit late, I can understand that. That we lose players late, that can be explained. But if we get rich financially, we get poorer sportingly. ” Before Adilson Malanda, he had already had to deal with two major departures in defense, those of Johann Obiang (Caen) and Julien Célestine (Léon, Mexico). And only the first was replaced, by Akim Abdallah.

“Today I am very upset. We have a great game to play and we are talking about boring thingsa chained Peyrelade. When you want to be in performance, you have to keep your best players. Here we are losing them. I am happy for them, they have very good challenges. But from the club’s point of view… We have to pray that our players don’t get injured, because there aren’t very many of us.”

Murat: “Three players arrive on Monday or Tuesday”

He may have been reassured by the speech of his president, who announced the imminent arrival of reinforcements. “Monday or Tuesday, three players will arrive”, he assured. And that may not be all. “At the end of next week, on a slightly more complicated file, perhaps one more”completed the leader.

Enough to clear up any misunderstandings? Have. Because Laurent Peyrelade and Pierre-Olivier Murat, not to mention deep disagreement, were not in phase when addressing the workforce situation. “What happens is part of the management of a coachadvanced the latter. He loses two executives in defense, who were not executives when they arrived at the club.” And to continue: “The president presides, he makes the decisions; the manager manages, he offers me profiles; the coach must coach.”

Laurent Peyrelade’s wish is to take care of a larger group which will not experience any more departures. “We didn’t need to add files, and that’s what annoys meadvanced the latter. I understand the club’s position very well, it makes sense. But sometimes we disagree. And today, we disagree.” And that happens on the day of a prestigious poster.

“At midnight, I had canceled the transfer”

Finally, he will not return to Rodez. Having left for the United States for a few days to finalize his transfer to the Charlotte club, Adilson Malanda was to take advantage of the fact that the next Major League Soccer season does not resume until February to stay at Raf on loan, until the 31 december.

“It was a wish on our part and theirs,” said Pierre-Olivier Murat. The Raf had also announced this operation, Thursday, August 4, when formalizing the transfer of the defender. Only, according to the president of Raf, the common will stumbled on a point of regulation of the MLS, which prevented the loan of the defender.

A return that almost canceled everything overnight from Thursday to Friday. “At midnight, I had canceled the transfer with Charlotte,” assured Murat. Before returning to his position a little later, at the insistence of the player.

“At 4 a.m., Adilson called me and said, ‘President, I understand your position but I’m begging you, I want to stay here,'” the leader reported. been completely upside down all season.” It was then necessary to act urgently to find common ground. “The MLS transfer market closed at 6 a.m. French time. We found an additional agreement,” he said, without specifying the conditions.
