Nantes were once one of the best clubs in France – as we have witnessed through their eight league titles – but in recent years, the club has fallen into disrepair. After four seasons in Ligue 2, Nantes are back in the first division since 2013/14, although the club has flirted with relegation this season. After two jumping matches against Toulouse, the “Canaries” reassured themselves to stay.
But that did not create a cheerful atmosphere among the masses. On the contrary: after the defeat at home in the second leg against Toulouse, some angry fans stormed their way to the stadium to speak with club owner Valdemar Keita and other members of the board of directors. The Polish president managed to escape in time.
Why storm the stadium? According to the French media, we have to look for him in the household medium Moji Bayat – known to us. Last week some Ultras buried a coffin with the “FC KITA” ink on it. It is reported that Bayat had no choice but to dig the coffin with some of the other club leaders, which caused great anger among the ultras.
Several years ago, Bayat became the real estate agent par excellence in Nantes. According to some, he is even the unofficial sports director there, although he has always denied this himself. Since 2016, Pyatt has led players such as Guillaume Gillet (from Anderlecht), Joris Kaembe (from Porto), Kelifa Koulibaly (from Ghent), Yacine El Ghanassi (from KV Oostende), Anthony Limbombe (from Club Brugge) and Kara Mboj (from Anderlecht) to the French club.
