Maurice promises reinforcement in January and defends his recruit Loïc Badé!

Zapping But! Football Club Stade Rennais: the 10 biggest sales of the Rouge et Noir

In the columns of Ouest-France, Florian Maurice (technical director of Stade Rennais) broke the silence and has already opened the Winter Mercato. The former OL recruiter announced that his club, a little tight in the defensive sector with only three central (Badé, Omari, Aguerd) would recruit.


“A reflection on the post of central defender” (only)

“We assume, because we make strategic choices. We have integrated a lot of young players and I am convinced that some can play in this position. Nayef Aguerd will go to CAN, so there will necessarily be a reflection on the position of central defender in the winter transfer window. Until then, I am convinced that our central defense is able to meet all the deadlines, ”assured Florian Maurice.

A priori, the central axis is the only point of reflection despite the ADC: « On the guard post, Romain Salin is there, Dogan (Alemdar) has arrived. And then Hamari (Traoré) will also go to CAN, but we could see that Lorenz (Assignon) was able to make up for his absence. I think we are sufficiently armed to make up for this month and a half when the internationals will not be there ”.

“I’m not worried about Loïc Badé”

On the other hand, there is no question of seeing this arrival announced as a disavowal for Loïc Badé, disappointing since his arrival from RC Lens: “You have to be aware of your difficulties. Provide support for these difficulties. Does he feel good tactically, technically? How does he behave extra sportingly? Who is his entourage? What can we do to make him feel better? Loïc has no difficulty integrating, when we look back on his first two matches, they are good for a new one. After that there is this somewhat more difficult period, but I explained to him, in a career, that we go through this kind of event. And we come out stronger (…) But I’m not worried. He goes from a system to three defenders, to two defenders. He needs to readjust, because he played at Le Havre in a four-man defense. There are things that turn things upside down, it’s a new challenge, there is perhaps the pressure of the amount that has been invested ”.

Mercato, Badé … Florian Maurice at the front!

In Ouest-France, Florian Maurice (technical director of Stade Rennais) returned to the Breton club’s January Mercato where a defensive correction will be made. On the other hand, there is no question of calling into question the recruitment of Loïc Badé. His words.
