Author of a remarkable start to the season with FC Annecy – he found the net six times in seven National 1 matches – Romain Spano is the number 1 threat of his team, 3rd in the championship (16 goals scored) before the 9th day. Second top scorer in the championship behind Laval’s Geoffray Durbant (7 goals), he convinced his leaders to offer him a two-year extension, while his contract ended on June 30, 2022.
Rediscover the professional world with Annecy
Revealed in Andrézieux in National 2 where his performances had caught the eye of some professional clubs, the striker was engaged during the 2018 winter transfer window with Clermont Foot 63, then in Ligue 2. Failure to s’ impose there durably, the native of Aubagne had been loaned to the FBBP01 during the following financial year 2018-2019. Recruited by Annecy in the summer of 2019 when the club was playing in N2, the number 9 has recovered in Haute-Savoie where he has 22 goals and 2 assists in 48 matches. Injured from July to October 2020, Michel Poinsignon had sorely missed him during the first third of last season and his presence was felt during the crazy rise in the standings in the second phase. This extension also seems to testify to the common desire of the two parties to continue to grow together and to find, in particular for Spano, the professional circuit which he briefly tasted with Clermont (4 matches of Ligue 2).
