Asked to comment on the imminent ouster of Raymond Domenech from FC Nantes, Jérôme Rothen believes that the former coach of the Blues must take responsibility for the Nantes debacle, unable to win for three months.
Far from having had seven lives at FC Nantes, Raymond Domenech will have only had seven games. Seven Ligue 1 matches without a single victory. A record far too thin and a dynamic to quickly reverse to hope to save the Canaries, who should push its president Waldemar Kita to dismiss him imminently.
While the former coach of the Blues should be replaced by Antoine Kombouaré, whose arrival at the club is “very advanced” according to our information, criticism is raining about Domenech, who has never managed to instill the slightest revolt in a Nantes group amorphous in the face of a catastrophic sporting situation (16 consecutive matches without the slightest victory).
“He doesn’t even realize his level”
So, is the responsibility to blame the club, or Raymond Domenech? “It’s for Raymond Domenech, responds tit for tat Jérôme Rothen in Top of the Foot, Wednesday evening. Kita made the choice of Domenech, a thoughtful choice. He thought that Domenech was going to do better than Christian Gourcuff (the previous Nantes coach) , editor’s note), and that the club would come back up. On arrival, it’s the opposite. “
Nantes occupy a worrying 18th place in Ligue 1, and seem inexorably drawn to the bottom, they who were sixteenth when Domenech arrived at the club last December. “Domenech, we have already spoken of his past. It was Knysna, and since then, nothing. There, he arrives and Nantes is on the verge of tumbling down, continues Rothen. His incompetence, we have seen and we have seen it. sees several years later. There has never been anything (with Domenech), not even a little trick. He has always been saved in the French team by great players. The problem is that he does not surrender not even consider his level. “
