The LFP has ruled! The coach of FC Nantes, Antoine Kombouaré, will be well without one of its central defenders during the match against the Girondins de Bordeaux.
FC Nantes: Kombouaré without a defender against Bordeaux
It is a highly anticipated meeting in Gironde. On the occasion of the celebration of its 140 years, the Girondins de Bordeaux host FC Nantes for the clash of the 10th matchday of Ligue 1. This Atlantic derby will take place on October 17th in the legendary Bordelais venue, the Matmut Atlantique. And for this highly anticipated meeting, the coach of FC Nantes will have to compose without Jean-Charles Castelletto.
Meeting this Wednesday, the disciplinary commission of the Professional Football League (LFP) decided to impose a suspension match on the central defender of FC Nantes, as had been anticipated for a few days. The reason for this sentence? The 26-year-old picked up three yellow cards in less than 10 games. Jean-Charles Castelletto was therefore logically suspended for the match against the Girondins de Bordeaux. Deprived of his usual holder in this position, coach Antoine Kombouaré will have to review his plans for his defense.
Who to replace Jean-Charles Castelletto?
Arrived from Stade Brest in July 2020, Jean-Charles Castelletto has gradually settled into the defense of FC Nantes. This season, the versatile defender, able to evolve as much in the axis in defense as in the sides, has already played eight Ligue 1 matches in the Yellow and Green jersey. Absent at the beginning of the season, it is Fabio who had replaced him against Angers. The Brazilian defender, who is recovering from a right thigh injury, could therefore replace him for the match against the Girondins de Bordeaux. But for now, only one thing is certain, the Cameroonian defender of FCN will miss the derby against Bordeaux.
