FC Nantes is on the edge of the red zone and the position of Antoine Kombouaré is not really guaranteed for the current truce. But changing coaches is not recommended for Waldemar Kita.
Good draw from last season and surprise winner of the Coupe de France, FC Nantes is struggling to confirm. Deprived of its best striker Randal Kolo-Muani who left to make Frankfurt happy, the Loire-Atlantique club is struggling to respond on all counts. If the qualification was snatched in a rather incredible way in the Europe League, the results in the league are more disappointing. The Canaries are on the edge of the red zone and they fail to take off. It didn’t take that much for some clubs to change coaches. But this does not seem to be the trend at the FCN, and this is in any case what Denis Balbir hopes.
A good transfer window more than a new coach

In his column on Goal, the journalist specifically asked Waldemar Kita not to give in to the temptation to fire Antoine Kombouaré. “ Can there be a change of coach at FC Nantes during this month and a half of break? It would be totally incongruous. To change Antoine Kombouaré during the break when he managed to qualify this team for the 16th final of the Europa League despite the departure of important players like Randal Kolo Muani would be heresy. Even if it’s not terrible in Ligue 1, Nantes is not in the four places of relegation. Nor can we say that Nantes has a plethoric workforce in terms of quality and quantity to hope to play on several fronts… For Waldemar Kita to make Antoine Kombouaré pay for the start of the season, that would be truly catastrophic. For me, what is needed above all is a good winter transfer window “Asked the commentator, convinced that with a little reinforcement, Nantes can confirm their revival and why not play nicely against Juventus in the 16th final of the Europa League.
