After the injury of Rabah Slimani, hit in the biceps on the first day, against Stade Français and promised a long absence (four months), Clermont faced a lack of manpower at the post of right pillar: Cristian Ojovan, 25, was to assume the role with the only alternative being Giorgi Dzmanashvili, a 20-year-old Georgian rookie who had just arrived from his native country.
The ASM therefore decided to strengthen itself by recruiting Davit Kubriashvili, a veteran of the Top 14. The Georgian, 36, had been without a contract since the end of his adventure at USAP, where he had just spent two seasons. After Montpellier, Toulon, Stade Français or Grenoble, he will therefore discover a new club in Auvergne, as an additional player, until the end of the season. It is “immediately operational” according to a press release from the ASM.
