Myziane presented

Freshly arrived at the Gym, Myziane had a busy morning on Tuesday. On the pitch, alongside his teammates and then in front of the press where he was presented to the world.  

“He will be in the squad going to Caen”

At 9am, the man who arrived from Lyon participated in his first session with the Aiglons. A session that was made up of various technical drills, during which he was able to show real promise. “I saw him in training, he works, I loved his attitude, commented Patrick Vieira. The club’s scouts have been following him these past years. We know his potential: he likes to attack the space, is very good in one on ones, breaks the line, and scores goals... He will add something offensively. He is still young, he needs to learn. My objective is to help him to grow so that he becomes an important player for OGC Nice and Ligue 1. We will give him some time to get his bearings, we will learn to get to know each other.”  The coach continued before confirming that Myziane “will be in the squad” that travels to Caen this weekend.

The Gym’s newest forward was beaming in front of the media. He kept his objectives in mind and calmly explained the reasons that convinced him to join the Aiglons. “Everything attracted me about OGC Nice, the club is very ambitious and is in the process of growing. The fact that Patrick Vieira is also here, also played an important role in my decision. I know Malang from the national side and what he told me about the club pleased me. The first contact with my new teammates was very good, there are very good players and great people. I hope that it will continue like this. It’s very important to be supported. I know that here, there is a very strong link between the fans and the players, that’s important.” 

After wearing the number 17 at Lyon, Myziane chose number 26 at the Gym. “OGC Nice decided to retire the number 17 shirt for Kévin Anin, who had to end his career prematurely, he explained. I think that this is very good from the club and I have no problem taking the number 26 which was available.”
