Vito Mannone will be able to continue. Recruited this summer as an understudy for the Swiss Yvon Mvogo, the experienced 34-year-old Italian, who worked for Arsenal and Monaco in particular, will end the season as a starter in the Lorient goal.
Seriously injured knee when receiving Paris-SG (1-2), in November, Mvogo will still be absent for several months. This prompted the Breton leaders to reflect on the need to recruit a titular goalkeeper. As revealed in The Teamthey had given themselves until mid-January before deciding.
Herve Koffi courted
After the draw against Monaco (2-2) and the defeat in Marseille (1-3), Les Merlus had probed the situation of Benjamin Lecomtewhich has since become Montpellier, and tried the Alphonse Areola trail. Failing an agreement and faced with Mannone’s convincing performances, they finally decided to trust him until Mvogo’s return. The Italian has already appeared seven times in Ligue 1 this season.
At the same time, Lorient tried to move forward at the start of the week on the arrival of Burkinabé Hervé Koffi (26), in the form of a loan. But negotiations seem to have slowed down since then with Charleroi.
