Yesterday, at the end of the afternoon, FC Nantes put an end to a nightmarish 2020/2021 season. In the fight for maintenance throughout the second half of the season, the club on the banks of the Erdre had to juggle catastrophic sporting results (16 consecutive matches without a win, in all competitions), incessant changes of coaches (Christian Gourcuff , Patrick Collot, Raymond Domenech and Antoine Kombouaré just for this season) and the sling of opponents to Waldemar Kita.
But yesterday, the Canaries still managed to save their skin in Ligue 1. Beaten 1-0 at La Beaujoire, Alban Lafont’s partners took advantage of their 2-1 success in Toulouse to maintain themselves thanks to the goal rule outside. A huge relief for the players and staff of an FCN in the heart of the storm. However, the Nantes residents could not really celebrate their maintenance as they wanted. Still as much booed by a large part of the supporters of the club, the Kita clan has again made its own.
After the game, 20 minutes relates that Waldemar Kita addressed the employees by talking about “Shit season”, before adding: “I hope we will never do that again”. It missed. In the evening, the @rendezleFCN Twitter account published an incredible photo of an agent and Mogi Bayat (the latter is considered the unofficial sports director of the FCN) carrying the FC Kita coffin that supporters had buried for a few days. earlier in a vacant lot on the outskirts of the Beaujoire.

An exhumation which almost caused a tragedy. Indeed, 20 minutes and West France indicated last night that around thirty people, mostly hooded, entered the stadium and attacked FCN staff who were celebrating the maintenance there. The father and son Kita were no longer present. Six people were arrested and The team confirmed that these individuals had come to take revenge and recover this famous coffin. A new incident which once again testifies to the gulf that separates two irreconcilable parties. However, it should be noted that the anti Kita protests had been peaceful until then. The events of last night could therefore mark a turning point and push the public authorities to react.
In any case, this is what a Waldemar Kita very upbeat at the microphone of the local channel is hoping for. Telenantes. “They’re thugs. They disembarked when the staff were present and happy (to celebrate the maintenance). This is not serious. And you ask me for a reaction on what happened last week (when the supporters buried the coffin of FC Kita, note)? It is a tragedy what happened. Do we bury a guy alive, a whole family, a whole club? The police, you journalists, everyone is there and doing nothing? What are you waiting for? Someone die? This is what almost happened yesterday. I left within a quarter of an hour. If I had stayed there… They came for this. The police, the town hall and the prefect, where are they? There is the poor waitress who may have almost found herself disabled. What is that ? How can you do things like this? It is a scandal what is happening. I told the prefect, the town hall and the police: “In any case, as long as there is no death, no one will move. There must be a dead person. I know very well how it goes. Nothing will be done, as usual! Regarding the coffin, did the town hall, the prefect or the police say anything? Nothing ! No one has moved. Would you have been happy to be buried? That we go down to the second division? Don’t talk to me about whether or not to stay. It is a much bigger problem than that. I’m telling you, I think we avoided death yesterday ”.
