Ignatius Ganago, the rookie took his time

The perfect cross shot from the right foot of Ignatius Ganago literally blew up La Beaujoire, after additional time (90th + 4). “With maximum success, the ball passing between several legs and touching the post before entering, which we knew how to provoke, to get”, noted the Nantes coach, Antoine Kombouaré. And this goal symbolized the increasingly decisive side of the Cameroonian international striker (23 years old, 11 caps). Despite a playing time that remains relatively short.

“He confirms all the good that we thought of him”

But that did not prevent the defeat of his team (2-3). Not so often a starter (twice in four Europa League appearances and four times in seven L1 games), he has confirmed his rise to power in recent days, which fully corresponds to his team’s renewed form.

Ganago indeed scored the goal of 2-1 against Brest (4-1, October 16) and opened the scoring on the lawn of Nice (1-1), last Sunday. His fourth goal in eleven games with FC Nantes, which offers him a very precious European success (2-1) necessarily delighted Kombouaré at the highest point: “We are super happy with him, he took a little time to find his feet, he had a little problem (to a calf, which made him miss the match against Freiburg, 0-4, on October 13). But he confirms all the good that we thought of him. He has talent and he put it at the service of the collective. »
To which he opened new and superb prospects for the immediate future.
