N1M. Lanester – Vénissieux, this Saturday (6:30 p.m.)
Originally from Rouen, the Congolese has an atypical career, having only started handball in a team under 18 in Deville-Lès-Rouen in Seine-Maritime. “I practiced football for ten years, then my choice fell on handball where I was more fulfilled. In seniors, I had to compose between the studies of Staps and handball, which brought me to Boulogne. I also played in Proligue in Cherbourg before joining Gonfreville which is therefore my last club. »
Sure of his abilities
Attracted by the enticing project of the Breton club, Ngoulou decided to join Lanester Handball knowing what he could bring to an already high quality squad. “I had the chance to participate in the World Cup with my country, so I think I can bring my experience to a fairly young squad. I was recruited for my defensive qualities in the first place. I think I can add an extra physical impact.”
In the same vein as its leaders, the rear of 1.95 m knows the objectives and intends to fulfill them. “The goal is to maintain this season, then settle in as a very good elite N1 team. If we see bigger, obviously bringing the club up to the Proligue would be incredible, but we have to go step by step.
“I am 200% ready and motivated! »
After a few months in the Brittany region, the new dragon is full of praise for his new environment. “It’s true that it’s very nice to be able to have such a framework off the pitch. The supporters are also very loud and push us. On the field, it shows”.
In short, a perfect integration for great performances expected and necessary for his team. “The whole team gets on really well and I was made very welcome. Even if the start of the season was complicated in terms of injuries, I am ready and motivated at 200%! »
