Nantes Boss Gourcuff Hails ‘Quality Winger’ Simon

Nantes manager Christian Gourcuff has heaped plaudits on Moses Simon following the Nigerian impressive showing for the club in the French Ligue 1 this season.

Simon enjoyed a successful loan spell at Nantes from La Liga side UD Levante this past season and he could soon complete a permanent transfer to the French club.

“We soon realised that he would be a good choice, Gourcuff told RMC Sports.

“I didn’t know him at first, but his track records and qualities are great.

“From the moment there was an option to buy him , we had no doubts.

“The player himself also said that he wanted to stay. I don’t know the details, but I never doubted the purchase option.”

Simon scored nine goals and provided eight assists in 30 appearances across all competitions for Nantes in the 2019/20 campaign.

  • Simon, your performance is very impressive and no doubt we are proud of what you have become. We hope that you can raise your game more and keep your love fitness higher and perhaps remain humble as you have been so that you can keep your place in the eagles. Congratulations on the delivery of a new baby. God keep you and your home.
