Frustrated after the transfer window Kombouaré makes an announcement for his future
This summer, Antoine Kombouaré will once again have made an impression with his sensational outings on the transfer window. Disappointed with the recruits who arrived on the transfer market, the Kanak did not hesitate to put pressure on Waldemar Kita, threatening to leave his post if ever he was not satisfied with the recruitment. Nevertheless, although he did not obtain all the recruits claimed, Kombouaré put an end to speculation.
As often in FC Nantesit is very hot between Waldemar Kita and his trainer. Antoine Kombouare is no exception to the rule. And for good reason, this summer, the Kanak did not fail to show his disappointment with the transfer window of the Canaries which has long remained blocked at three recruits, namely Moussa Sissoko transferred from Watford for around 2M€ while Mostafa Mohamed and Evann Guessand were loaned respectively by Galatasaray and theOGC Nice. Not enough for Antoine Kombouaré. ” Four reinforcements are needed “, released the former Parisian a few days before the end of the transfer window. But alone Ignatius Ganago landed in the last few hours. Therefore, the risk that Kombouare carry out his threat to resign has gained momentum.
“It’s a trying time, from which we often come out disappointed”
Moreover, during his visit to a press conference, Antoine Kombouare did not hide his disappointment after the transfer window: “ It is a trying period, from which we often come out disappointed. Yes, there is disappointment, but I’m happy with the group I have. My best recruitment is to have kept Ludovic Blas, Alban Lafont and Moses Simon. We had to add something more to this group. We had eight departures for four arrivals. But in the departures, there is only one holder and it is Randal (Kolo Muani). The four players recruited are all potential starters. I repeat, I am happy with the players who make up the squad. The moods, we put them aside. The chance I have is to be in Nantes, a club to which I owe everything. We will play PSG tomorrow, Europe next week. These are fantastic prospects. I am especially happy that the transfer window is over. »

Kombouaré seals its future…
However, the coach of FC Nantes assures that he has already moved on and does not expect to see a joker eventually land after the transfer window closes. And especially, Antoine Kombouare reveals, that after reflection, he will stay well at the FC Nantes : “ I moved on and stopped dreaming. My job is to find solutions within the group I have. You know, I’m not here to be friends with the president, but to run the club together. The rest is literature. I have two solutions: either I sulk and quit, or I stay and work. I want the second option. A relief for the Canaries, especially since Kombouare is very ambitious.
… and displays his ambitions with FC Nantes
” It’s taking shape. The new ones are integrating faster than I thought. Bad luck, we play PSG tomorrow. We do some interesting things. We must have a serene championship if we are serious. But there is the European Cup coming. Beyond the quality of the opponents, we must also manage the length of the trips. For the first, in Baku, it is seven hours of flight. They managed to be good right away and that made it easier for them to integrate. They put in a lot of effort and the elders opened their arms wide to welcome them. We will make a first assessment at the September break, to see if what we are currently showing can do so over time. », concludes Antoine Kombouare on the sidelines of the match against PSG.
