Nancy endured a nerve-shredding campaign last time out, in which they narrowly missed relegation, despite having the third-biggest budget in the league. Their problems did not stop there. Such was their financial position, they were forced to appeal against relegation on economic grounds and narrowly passed the test. However, they lost numerous key elements that helped them to stay afloat last year, including loan stars Sylvain Marveaux and Vagner, and also head coach Alain Perrin. Consequently, they have been forced into drastic cost-cutting measures, getting rid of a large number of players in what was an overly large squad. Twelve players were released or allowed to join other teams, while five loan players, including four vital to the functioning of the team, all departed. Nancy have moved to replace these players and have opted to go for tried-and-tested Ligue 2 players. Ande Dona Ndoh and Ousmane Cissokho have both been stalwarts at this level for several years and come with certain guarantees, while Nimes goalkeeper Baptiste Valette arrives after spending much of last term on the bench in Ligue 1. They remain saddled with several underperforming high earners, including Danilson, who was expected to be a hit when he arrived last summer but proved entirely peripheral. He is the club’s leading wage and is a major issue as a consequence. Academy players are set to feature prominently this season, with Amine Bassi perhaps the most promising of these. He was disappointing last term, although he has rarely played in the No.10 role that suits him best. Deeper in the midfield, Laurent Abergel and Vincent Marchetti are set to be important while Abdelhamid El Khaoutari will be critical in the defence after impressing following his arrival in January. While Nancy’s squad is not lacking in numbers, many of these players failed to pull their weight last year and new boss Jean-Louis Garcia faces a major challenge to get more from them this time around. He may need to find a way, as the resources to bring in loan players like last year are unlikely to be available, and that was what saved Nancy from the drop.

Target


Nancy may be a traditionally big club at this level, but they come into this season lacking quality. Another difficult campaign looms and, while they should not go down, they may be in for another battle.

Season Review
2018/2019

№14: AS Nancy Lorraine

Despite boasting one of the biggest budgets in Ligue 2, Nancy flirted dangerously with relegation for much of the season. Indeed, in November their situation looked bleak, with the team utterly bereft of attacking flair and entirely without confidence. Alain Perrin had been asked to replace Didier Tholot as head coach after a disastrous beginning to the campaign that saw the Lorraine side rooted to the foot of the standings from the first week of the campaign. He was their fourth coach in under a year. Remarkably, they failed to score at all in their first seven matches. A turning point arrived in late November as they edged Red Star, which was part of a seven-match undefeated run in all competitions, including three Coupe de France games. January, meanwhile, brought renewed hope as Vagner was signed from Saint-Etienne, Santy Ngom from Nantes and Sylvain Marveaux from Lorient, in order to pep up the attack. Abdelhamid El-Kaoutari, meanwhile, was terrific in defence after arriving, while Denis Will Poha was strong in midfield. If Marveaux’s contribution initially was limited due to injury, Vagner exploded into life from the outset, providing the flair and finishing power that the team had for so long lacked. Once Marveaux proved his fitness and got going, he was even more influential in Perrin’s system. The results quickly followed for Nancy, who enjoyed a four-game winning stream to drag them out of the relegation zone for the first time all season in March. Although there was a little relapse, which threatened to damage the confidence of the team, back-to-back late home wins over Orleans and Ajaccio, claimed thanks to spectacular long-range goals, went a long way to securing their place in Ligue 2 before a narrow derby win over Metz finally sealed it. Nancy have tough work in the summer getting some players off their books, with Danilson a particular liability as their highest earner. He has barely played all season. There are several others in a similar position. If they can trim their squad, they can seek to strengthen with the calibre of signing they found in a pinch in January. Perrin, their saviour, has already announced he will leave, giving the board yet another headache.
