The first words of Patrick Etshimi
“I am happy to join a club that I know very well. We have met quite a lot in recent years. As with Bastia this season or the Entente in the past. It is a club which lives well and which is family. He has the ambition to go up every year. It really makes me happy to sign at the Lusitanos. I have always chosen clubs that are ambitious and want to grow. I was able to speak with former teammates who did not hesitate to give me good indications about him. I have no doubt in my choice. In recent years, I have always taken care to set goals and help to go up. During my discussions with the General Manager and the President, this only confirmed my impressions. I’m not coming for a season. I really want to join the Lusitanos project. I intend to bring the best of myself and why not end my career there? I already tasted Ligue 2. Last year, I was able to help Bastia find the National. I succeeded in my mission. But I wanted to get closer to my son and my family who are in the Paris region. The Lusitanos allow me to do this in an ambitious project. I experienced strong emotions during my games against the Lusitanos. Now, I can’t wait to thrill the supporters of Saint-Maur and achieve my goals with the Lusitanos. “
Clap of end between Patrick Etshimi and SC Bastia!
