We wondered if the departure of Cris, after another defeat at Cholet on November 4, would cause the expected shock among the Le Mans workforce.
We will have the answer at the end of the game, announced Yohann Feurprier, at the head of the group for this transition week. This answer is provided by Hassimi Fadiga, Makan Aïko and their teammates excellently this Friday, November 11, 2022.
Makan Aiko opens the scoring
Makan Aïk’s opener, Hassimi Fadiga’s double, the first goal of young Théo Eyoum, more used to the reserves of Blood and Gold, and another strike from 30 meters by the mighty Jeffrey Quarshie, Le Mans FC showed, as it often does at home, its offensive qualities.
Yohann Feurprier may have announced the day before the meeting that he wants to work in some continuity with Cris’s era, Le Mans FC made two tactical changes that we will surely have to rely on in the future. Deep play, made possible in large part by Armand Gnanduillet and his ability to hold onto the ball to set up a Sarthois block. Unprecedented play in counter-pressing with every Le Mans ball loss that destabilized Auvergne’s counter-attack.
If the new identity of the Blood and Gold coach has been slow to be announced – despite persistent rumors surrounding the return of Frédéric Hantz – Le Mans FC’s players showed tonight that there is room for a fresh start at the club and a few more points to pick up in the competition.
