Nantes: things heated up in the locker room between Kombouaré and Pallois

After the defeat against Nice this Sunday (1-2), Antoine Kombouaré, the Nantes coach, had an altercation with Nicolas Pallois, one of his players, according to 20 Minutes.

Defeated against Nice at Beaujoire (1-2), this Sunday, Nantes sank a little deeper into the crisis. The Canaries have not won at home since the 7th day and seem stuck in 19th place in Ligue 1. This new setback has surely put a blow to the morale of the workforce, while 20 Minutes revealed that an altercation had took place after the match between Antoine Kombouaré and Nicolas Pallois.

A kick in a bag at the origin of the conflict

Raised after the defeat, the Nantes coach berated his players in the locker room, before kicking a bag in anger. Nicolas Pallois, among the more experienced players on the team, then asked him to calm down, telling him that he could not speak like this. The two men then climbed into the towers and would have been “physically intimidated”, before Abdoulaye Touré separated them.

The atmosphere would therefore not be in good shape in the group, while Kombouaré only participated in his seventh game over the head of Nantes. The Kanak technician was appointed on February 11 to replace Raymond Domenech and curb the club’s poor dynamic, on the verge of relegation. Over the entire season, the club has already had four coaches, including interim Patrick Collot.
