Gaëtan Laborde, Montpellier striker, does not hide his wish to leave the club this summer. He would like to try the adventure abroad but does not close the door to Ligue 1 where he finds interesting projects.
Gaëtan Laborde (27) should no longer be a Montpellier player next season. “It’s time to go,” he told L’Equipe this Friday. At the end of a big season (16 goals, 8 assists), the striker arouses much envy and wishes to embark on a new challenge two years from the end of his contract with the MHSC, and three years after his arrival from Bordeaux.
After L1, L2 and National, he “necessarily thinks abroad” and wants to play the European Cup. But above all, he wants Montpellier to find its way financially with the compensation for his transfer.
“The Zenith has great arguments”
He could have already left last winter for West Ham. “The visionaries were not all green to leave in January, he confides. (…) I know the opportunities are there. But I will also have to have a real feeling. I do not want to go m ‘bury in a club under the pretext of a good contract. “
He does not consider Zenith Saint Petersburg, another courtier, as an exotic destination. “They are champions of Russia and compete in the C1 regularly, he recalls. It is a great club with consistency in the results. (…) The Champions League, the possibilities of titles each season, the Zenith has to beautiful arguments. “
If the stranger interests him, he does not close any door, like that of L1. “Despite the crisis, there are great sporting projects like in Nice or Rennes,” said the player who would like to be fixed as soon as possible.
