The case seemed to be in the bag. No later than this Friday, M’Baye Niang was in Saint-Etienne for his medical examination. The Stade Rennais center-forward loaned out, but finally fell apart, the fault of too greedy agents, and a final refusal of ASSE to spend more than is reasonable. Disappointed, the first interested party gave his feelings on this failure.
At 25 and at the start of this 2020-2021 season, M’Baye Niang knows that he will most likely have to wear the Stade Rennais jersey for a few more months. After eyeing the side of OM, and having passed very close to Saint-Etienne, the center forward must resolve to stay in Brittany. And this aborted loan with the Greens did not please him, as he indicated this Sunday daily The team. “There were complications that also pissed me off“, he said. “We decided by mutual agreement to stop everything because we felt that it was not going to do it.“
“Win back everyone”
From there to throwing stones at his agents, Niang wants to calm things down. “We tell each other the truth. My transfer to OM had failed before that. I was disappointed, but I didn’t question everything that was done. (My agents) allowed me to join Rennes where I relaunched myself, it should not be forgotten. (…) Today, I’m coming back to Stade Rennais, I’m going to win back everyone and M’Baye will take his place again.“The Senegalese will have a lot to do to convince Julien Stephan who now prefers rookie Serhou Guirassy, already scorer of three goals in five matches.
