After M’Baye Niang sees his move to ASSE fall apart, he’ll find Rennes. And despite this turning point, the Senegalese want to return to Julien Stéphan’s in Brittany.
M’Baye Niang, who was mentioned on the OM or ASSE side during the transfer market, had still not left Rennes at the end of the transfer window. Nevertheless, a departure was always mentioned for the Senegalese. This week the Greens have everything they can to joker the attacker. And while the case appeared to be in full swing, ASSE finally announced this Saturday that Niang will not be arriving in the end. A rebound that will force the 25-year-old forward to return to Brittany, where he hopes to regain his first place now in competition with Serhou Guirassy.
“It’s up to me to show that I’m the best”
“I played with great players for AC Milan today, with all due respect to my team-mates. If I have accepted this competition, I will also accept it in Rennes. It wasn’t a question of competition, the proof is I’ll be back. There is competition everywhere. It’s up to me to show that I’m the best. Better than Guirassy? What tells you today that I’m not number 1? You have to judge when you are at 100%. After a complicated period, it will take time to keep your head straight, close your eyes and ears, work, score goals, and help teammates. (…) I always said that if I had to stay, I would be happiest. This is happening to me today. There is no problem for me. I was fortunate enough to have seen great things for two years. I’m coming back i’m ready I’ve always been pumped up, which also makes me strong, ”said Niang in an interview for L’Equipe.
