Posted : 19 September 2023
Moses Simon, the 28-year-old Nigerian winger for FC Nantes, finally broke a 10-month scoring dry spell with an exceptional lob against Clermont.
It was a momentous occasion for Simon, who is entering the last year of his Nantes contract, especially after a difficult stretch of 25 goalless matches.
Teammates and coach Pierre Aristouy lauded Simon's performance, marking a shift in his confidence and form.
The team captain, Spanish midfielder Pedro Chrivella, along with other teammates like Marcus Coco, emphasized the significance of confidence in Simon's renewed form.
Goalkeeper Remy Descamps pointed out his current impact on the team, attributing it to his revived form.
Coach Aristouy praised Simon as a top athlete and professional, noting that he seems to have come into his own, showing greater control in his game.
This season, Simon has contributed one goal and one assist in five games for Nantes.
