So how are Claudio doing, a full update on FC Nantes pre-season

DATE: 29.07.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Claudio Ranieri is back in management and preparing FC Nantes for the start of the French League. They finished 11 last season, and it will be interesting to follow Claudio on this new adventure

Ranieri has also prevously worked in this league with "high flying" Monaco. A club Claudio promoted back to the top level and set the standards for what is going on there at the moment. Now it's Nantes who will benefit from the knowledge of the "wizard".

TCF never really understood why Ranieri was sacked from his job at Leicester. He turned things around away to Seville, and the absent of Kasper Schmeichel and Riyad Mahrez during a crucial period of the season was the real reason for bad results.

Nantes was a force in French football for many seasons and won their last Championship back in 2001. Players such as Maxime Bossis, Marcel Desailly, Claude Makalele, Henri Michel, Dimitri Payet, Frankie Vercauteren and Mo Johnston are all former players in yellow and green.

Four pre-season games are played. Two draws against Lousanne and Hull. A win against Servette and loss v. Ingolstadt. Just excactly the same as City's pre-seaon so far. Two draws, one win and one defeat.

Ranieri has so far done some interesting signings. Defender Nicolas Pallois from Bordeaux, goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu from Fiorentina, and the duo forward Chidozie Aweziem and Joris Kayembe from Porto.

He has parted company with such players as goalkeeper Remy Riou (Alanyaspor), talented midfielder Amine Harit (Schalke), and experienced defender Oswaldo Vizcarrondo (Troyes).

The moves in the transfer market have strengthened the team, with Pallois coming in for an aging Vizcarrondo, and Rumanian international Tatarusanu a better option than Riou who has moved to Turkey.

The team is one interesting with a number of skilled players. Two of them are, former Fulham midfielder, Swedish international Alexander Kacaniklic and former Ajax forward, Iceland international Kolbein Sigtorsson. Both will be interesting to follow under the guidence of Ranieri.

One of the best players at Nantes, is Argentinian forward Emiliano Sala, who so far has scored 18 goals in 65 league games. French U.20 international Abdolaye Toure. Could he get his big breakthrough under Ranieri this season.

Also watch out for midfielder Adrien Thomasson, another 23 year old. Rongler, Bammou, and Belgian veteran Gillett will be of great importance. We wish Claudio Ranieri all the best on his next adventure in football, and will be looking out for the FA Nantes results this season.
