After having made our eleven of the best recruits of the last summer transfer window, we also took stock of the players who arrived this summer and who did not meet the expectations placed on them. For the position of goalkeeper, we selected the doorman of the Stade de Reims Patrick Pentz. The 25-year-old Austrian goalkeeper arrived this summer from Austria Vienna and saw his place stolen by young Yehvann Diouf after disappointing performances. More used since September 11 and a 1-0 defeat against Toulouse, the native of Salzburg will find it difficult to reverse the situation. At the right-back position, the Angevin Yan Valery who was quite disappointing could have been mentioned, but it is Colin Dagba which takes place. Preceded by Ronaël Pierre-Gabriel in the hierarchy and not very influential, the player on loan from PSG only has a secondary role in Alsace.

At the level of the central hinge, difficult not to think of Rennais Joe Rodon. On loan from Tottenham, the Welshman started as a starter before losing his place to Christopher Wooh. Quite neutral and lacking in serenity, he has not played in Ligue 1 for over a month and will try to take advantage of the World Cup to put his head back in place. Red lantern and worst defense in Ligue 1, Angers could have been represented by most of their defensive recruits of the summer, but it is Ibrahim Amadou who was chosen. Although experienced, the player who arrived from Metz this summer will experience another difficult season and does not come out of the game. Former Metz player also, Thomas Delaine take the left flank. Arrived in Strasbourg, he had made an encouraging start before slowly losing his footing. During the recent 4-2 defeat against Ajaccio, for example, he completely missed his game by causing two penalties.

Beautiful people in the middle and in attack

For the midfielder, we thought of Lille Jonas Martin who is an experienced Ligue 1 player. Arrived free from Rennes, he is struggling to find his place against Angel Gomes, Benjamin André and André Gomes and is chomping at the bit following this big competition. To accompany him, we could have mentioned Renato Sanches, but if we can expect more from the Portuguese, his appearances as a substitute slightly enhance the balance sheet. On the other hand Corentin Tolisso (Olympique Lyonnais) is a big disappointment. Falling back into his ways, the player who arrived from Bayern Munich is still experiencing physical glitches and is showing insufficient performance for a player who was playing in one of the best clubs in the world a few months ago. On the left side, we find Karamoko Dembele. The former nugget of Celtic Glasgow does not succeed in Brest where he played only 92 short minutes of play in 9 appearances.

On the other wing, we find Takumi Minamino which does not manage to confirm its beautiful dispositions displayed in Salzburg and Liverpool. The Japanese is not catastrophic with 1 goal and 3 offerings in 9 matches but his performance remains insufficient compared to the expectations placed on him. In front, Hugo Ekitike (PSG) who scored his first goal last Sunday against Auxerre held the rope, but it’s good Luis Suarez who was chosen. The former Granada who arrived at OM started with a double against Reims and since then the soufflé has fallen. 3 goals in 7 matches and not a single minute of play in the last five league matches. The Colombian is no longer really in Igor Tudor’s plans. At last, Mohammad Bayo complete this attack. Arrived for 14 million euros this summer in Lille from Clermont after having scored 14 goals in 32 matches last year, he has now scored 0 in 9 games. No longer a holder since August, he will have to redouble his efforts in 2023.
