Mbaye Niang is back. Absent since August, the Senegalese striker is again available and will play with Rennes this Friday.
Niang was summoned by Julien Stéphan for the reception of Bordeaux, on the occasion of the 11th day of Ligue 1. Another reinforcement for Rennes which has won only one game of its last five league games.
Announced on the departure with insistence last summer, Mbaye was in particular in the sights of Olympique de Marseille and did not hide his desire to join the Marseille club. What had thrown cold between him and his leaders.
Recently, the former Milanese was very close to joining AS Saint-Etienne. But his recruitment finally fell through.
The Rennes group against Bordeaux: Gomis, Salin – Soppy, Traoré, Da Silva, Aguerd, Nyamsi, Truffert – Nzonzi, Camavinga, Bourigeaud, Léa Siliki, Del Castillo, Gboho, Tait, Terrier, Doku – Hunou, Guirassy, Niang.
