The Douala native has described Friday’s events as a dream come true.
“It is good to sign my first professional contract today. Every footballer dreams of this day, it is the reward of several years of hardwork.
“I’ve been at FC Nantes for seven seasons. The years of training have been good, I have met good people for the most part and it is surely the best moments of my young career. Beyond that, I was able to train myself in football and as a man. Signing this professional contract is the conclusion of something and the start of a new adventure”He enthused
The player manifested his class with the reserves with glimpses of great displays.
“It will take more work to achieve more. I played with the reserve during the just-ended season. The events we are experiencing remind us that there are more important things than football. But if I was able to sign my contract, it is because the club has confidence in me. I aspire to continue my work in order to get be involved in the team. I don’t have limits”.
Tsague is widely considered as one of the most hardworking young players at the Beaujoire Stadium justifying the club’s confidence in the young forward.
“The club made the first proposal, there were discussions in the beginning of 2020 but nothing very concrete. Gradually, and during the confinement, the club contacted my representative, Laurent Gutsmuth via videoconference and there were fruitful negotiations. I am going today to Paris to meet my family, it was important that I can settle my personal situation but it is also a great satisfaction” Tsague concluded.
The club did not communicate tye duration of the contract but sources say it’s between a three-year-deal and a four-year-deal.
The potential Indomitable Lion holds a Cameroonian and French passport but remains uncapped for both nations.
The young forward has a chance to emulate a good number of Cameroonian footballers who have a great reputation at the club.
