Losc have a sacred defender to replace the experienced rock that was José Fonte.
Nice pick for the Mastiffs, who have just secured the services of a renowned defender, a world champion, in the person of Samuel Umtiti. This Friday morning, the unforgettable scorer of the 2018 World Cup semi-final against Belgium successfully passed his medical examination at Domaine de Luchin, Losc’s training center. It will be presented to the press this Saturday.
At 29, the one who recently terminated his contract with FC Barcelona, engages free in the North, perked up by a conclusive loan to Lecce, in Serie A, last season. Trained in Lyon, the native of Yaoundé, Cameroon, will thus defend the colors of a second Ligue 1 club, seven years after his departure from OL to put on the Blaugrana tunic.
