Hanouna still believes in it, don’t panic for the Chamois!

“A’ Niort, it’s always difficult. We are used to managing this kind of situation. Last year, we had six consecutive defeats at the end and that did not prevent us from staying in L2 […] We don’t worry, we have talented young players like Olaitan, Tormin, Bakayoko, Sagna or Kilama, who has never been so good. Let them progress […] We came very close in Bordeaux, against Guingamp we had to win, and in Caen, we dominated before losing on a stroke of luck. I repeat it once again: the players are involved, the work of the staff is good. We support them 100% and we trust Rui Almeida […] I see us finishing between tenth and fourteenth place. We want to stay in Ligue 2. The team is capable of it, we all have to stay positive”, confided Mikaël Hanouna, the DG of the Chamois Niortais.

A reaction will therefore be expected this Saturday against Dijon, on the side of Niort, who have only taken two small points in the league … during their last seven Ligue 2 meetings! And given the many absentees on the Niort side, it will not be easy for Rui Almeida’s Chamois…
