Mercato: After setting fire to Nantes, he unpacks everything

Real star of FC Nantes, Ludovic Blas should have left the club trained by Antoine Kombouaré this summer. But his transfer was aborted. He was therefore able to participate in the beautiful Nantes epic in the Europa League (eliminated in the round of 16 by Juventus) and in the Coupe de France (again finalist this season, after the victory last year). Did he digest this abortive transfer badly? He tells.

The 25-year-old native of Colombes arrived in Nantes in 2019, from Forward Guingamp. He quickly established himself as an indisputable starter, playing practically every game in a season. A great architect of Nantes’ victory in the Coupe de France last year with 5 goals scored in 6 games, he was to sign for the LOSC version Paulo Fonseca, but Antoine Kombouare had vetoed and Blas could not go to the North.

A hard-to-digest non-transfer

Last summer, Antoine Kombouare had taken a position on the transfer of his striker. The Kanak had then expressed his veto during a press conference: I have four attackers so sportingly, for me, Blas is a veto. It’s not a sports project, in my opinion. They finished tenth, behind us, and they don’t make the European Cup. You have to explain to me. »

“It was the situation that took a long time to digest”

Interviewed by Telefoot on TF1 this Sunday, the midfielder of FC Nantes Ludovic Blas returned to this aborted transfer this summer. His start to the season not having been good, he explained the reasons: It’s not the initial desire that took me a long time to digest, it’s the situation. When you tell me things, I follow you and when you tell me, I will give you. It was myself who went to see the coach to tell him that I was there 100%. “.
