“In three years, we will be in National”, warn the supporters of SCO Angers
“Why did you call on the fans to gather on Sunday before the match?
We see how things are going at the club right now. Everything goes wrong between the words of (Abdel) Bouhazama and the sporting situation (Angers last of the league 1 standings). Every day a new case appears. The goal is to get things done because the image of the SCO is completely tarnished. (Said) Chabane created what we have today, the stadium and the training center. But it is also he who is in the process of destroying everything. This is no longer possible, we want the direction to change. We want to score. It’s only a beginning. We want to be unifiers. We are not violent.
Do you communicate with the club?
Yes, we had meetings but we are not listened to. The last meeting dates back to before the World Cup. It goes back to when (Gerald) Baticle had to go. We had been told that we did not want Bouahzama. The president had promised us that he would not be the number one coach, just to make the connection before finding another experienced one, to try to keep the club in Ligue 1. As we see everywhere else. But we preferred to keep it…
What are you actually asking for?
The goal is to change the direction but we know that Chabane will not leave the club. It belongs to him. He has invested far too much money to be able to sell him and no one will want a club that goes down to Ligue 2. The players are also responsible. Apart from a few like (Pierrick) Chapel or (Paul) Bernardoni, with whom we have relations and who feel concerned, the others have nothing to do. (Sofian) Boufal, supposedly the child of the club, only thought of preparing for his World Cup and leaving. While he does not even play today in Qatar. Guys don’t care. At some point, they have minimal homework. We see it on the ground, they don’t even move. It is shameful !
“We have been fighting for years to have a barnum inside the stadium to organize happy hours after matches. And so that the players also come to see the supporters”
The problem is global, at all levels…
This is why we want a change already at the sporting level with the departure of (Laurent) Boissier, who is very divisive. He said at the start of the season that we would change our minds depending on his choice of players. We can clearly see that this is not working. In defense, it’s dramatic. It’s impossible to change the whole team now. Of course, the objective is to prepare a new team for Ligue 2. As much as putting young people from the training center, at least they will have the niaque.
Would you also like to feel included in the reflection?
Exactly. We’ve been asking for it for years. The problem in Angers is bringing people together. We know it’s not a soccer town. You have to work on people who like the SCO and make them want to come to the stadium. There’s nothing here, three poor fries stalls around and that’s it… We’ve been fighting for years to have a barnum inside the stadium to organize happy hours after matches. And so that the players also come to see the supporters. Not just VIPs. To be listened to. All the choices he (Chabane) has made, today he pays them. The new stand is empty. So, what do we do ? We stay ? Do we keep sinking? In three years, we are in National. Look Nancy. We left as if it continues. The guys are convinced they are right. »
