Olympic name

Extended group in Toulouse? They were only 16 on the scoresheet at Nancy and that didn’t stop the Crocs from winning 3-1 at the bottom. But for the final flight of the season, on Saturday in Toulouse, Nîmes will likely adopt an opposite strategy. In fact, a group of 20 to 21 players should take the direction of Haute-Garonne. The reserve is not playing this weekend, it may be an opportunity for some youngsters to beat the professional group and the context of League 2. Antoine Valerio, who has resumed training, will advance for a place in the group, which will not be the case. The case of Théo Sainte-Luce, who is still hampered by injury. The meeting will surely be sold out as the TFC will be trying to win the Ligue 2 Champion title. In the stands, there will also be gardois since fifty wrestlers make the trip.

Thibaut Vargas in Nîmes? And Rani Assaf announced during his speech on Monday that three players have already signed for Nimes Olympic Club next season. Among the players likely to appear on this list is Thibaut Vargas who plays for Chateauroux at National. The 21-year-old right-back is one of the highlights of this tournament with his attacking appearance, scoring three goals and providing three assists in 24 games this season. Nicolas Osaki did not rub his shoulders during his stay at Berry because the Montpellier-trained defender arrived in January 2021, a few weeks after his departure. Castelroussin club bought out definitively last summer, Thibaut Vargas signed for a year with an optional two-year extension. If the option was not executed, Nim would have nothing to push him to enlist this right. The Nîmes coach really wants to bring this player to Crocos and it can already be done. According to our information, another Châteauroux player has been targeted by NO. Experienced defender Yannick Mboone (29), at the end of the contract, can correspond to the desired profile. Nikola Osach knows him very well because he held him on his orders for two years (2018-2020). Among the other players managed by the coach who he would like to find, we can also mention Youssef Machangama (31 years old), captain Gangan, who has 7 goals and 14 assists in 31 games he played. The two men played together at Marseille Consoles from 2014 to 2016. Prior to facing Guingamp this season, Nicolas Osachs paid tribute to the attacking midfielder who is also at the end of his contract. If Nim had arguments to present, then there must be competition for that file.

Old people with a big heart. The former Nîmes Olympique team is back on duty this weekend. On Saturday at 4:30pm at Saint-Bauzély, NO’s past glories will meet their counterparts from FC Sète. It will bring back memories of the hot derby days between dolphins and crocodiles. On the side of the Nim River, we find especially Gregory Milhach, Mohamed Benyacho, Didier Bliss, Abdelraouf Zarabi and Omar Belbi. During this friendly, former footballers will run for the good cause because the money Tombola raised and donations will be made to the “Espoir SLA” association that fights Charcot’s disease. Entry to the game is free.
