How will Mbaye Niang find the Rennes jersey? The Senegalese striker with 29 goals, who dreamed of leaving Stade Rennais this summer, saw his transfer to As Saint-Etienne fail at the last moment.
Forced to stay at the club, Mbaye Niang should face competition from Adrien Hunou and especially rookie Serhou Guirassy (3 goals in 6 matches). But here he is again in Rennes, where the coach has been ensuring for weeks that he is still counting on him. He also explained his absence this Wednesday in training.
“The urgent need is to get him back in good physical condition. Then he can resume group training. From then on, he will be able to enter the competition again. It takes a little while to get back in shape, I don’t know how long it will take. Since he came back at the start of the week, he has been working hard, ”he said.
