Here are some of the latest snippets regarding the club:
Leo Gives Kombouare Backing
Director of football Leonardo has given Coach Antoine Kombouare his backing following the disappointing 1-0 home defeat to AS Nancy last Sunday.
In the run up to the game, Kombouare’s future had been put into doubt after it was confirmed Leo met with former Milan Coach – and friend – Carlo Ancelotti.
Nevertheless, the Brazilian insists that Kombouare has the backing of the club and nothing will change.
He told L’Equipe:
“There has been quite a lot said about Kombouare, but the squad knows what is going on. The situation has never changed and it’s not going to.”
“Kombouare has the full confidence of the club and we will continue to work together. He is the coach, nothing has changed.
“We only started that work four months ago and a lot of positive things have already happened. We’re improving, it’s part of the game.”
Erding En Route To Bordeaux?
According to France Football, striker Mevlut Erding may be on his way to Ligue 1 strugglers Bordeaux in the January transfer window.
The Turkish international has fallen out of favour due to the form of Kevin Gameiro and has seen his playing time limited so far this season.
Apparently, talks between the two clubs are at an advanced stage in regards to an initial loan deal.
