After discovering the elite’s antechamber with Ajaccio at the age of 17, without succeeding in imposing itself, Warren Caddy made his return to Ligue 2 by entering the 88e minute of play last Saturday at Châteauroux, where his new club, Paris FC, won 2-1 to further consolidate its leading position, with five lengths ahead of its runners-up, Troyes, Caen, who ‘he receives Saturday afternoon (3 p.m.), and Niort. Now 23 years old, Caddy, author of 5 goals in 8 National matches with Sète, was recruited as a joker due to the long unavailability of Lamine Diaby Fadiga, who had hamstring surgery. And he was also coveted by Montpellier as well as other Ligue 2 formations.

“He ticks all the boxes”

“I don’t think it was fast enough. It was more the MHSC who gave up than us, Sète president Jean-François Gambetti told Midi-Libre about this Montpellier interest. We would have accepted even the little they offered. It was acceptable, considering they would have loaned it to us until the end of the season. “ It is therefore under the thumb of a former coach of the Hérault club, René Girard, that he now evolves. “Caddy is really the profile we were looking for. He ticks all the boxes. He is powerful, good at the head and skilful in front of the goal, declared the 2012 French champion at a press conference. He’s a hungry young player. It is in our philosophy to grow with us this kind of player with high potential. I think he will adapt more easily in the group than a striker who is more settled and experienced. “

“In Colomiers, nobody wanted it”

After his disappointment in Corsica, the native of Cagnes-sur-Mer rebounded in National 2, in Grasse, Colomiers and Sète, with whom he experienced the rise in National at the end of the last season. And it has come a long way according to its former president. “When he was at Colomiers, nobody wanted him. We relaunched him”, Gambetti blurted out again. The person, who could benefit from more time against the Normans, is in any case very motivated, and wants to prove that he deserves his place at this level. “I was really keen to find Ligue 2 after my short stint that I experienced as a failure. This signing is something that I have been waiting for a while even if it arrives faster than expected”, he declared on the PFC website after his signature.
