Nantes boss Christian Gourcuff backs Moses to shine against Lille

Nantes head coach, Christian Gourcuff is delighted with the form of Moses Simon ahead of their Ligue 1 clash with Losc Lille.


Moses scored his first goal of the season last week as Nantes came back from two goals down to salvage a point against Saint Etienne last week.


Gourcuff says he’s sure that reigning Nantes player of the year has rediscovered his form in front of goal and he’s expecting him to help the team against Lille at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy tonight (Friday).


“This is obviously important. I take the example of Moses Simon. After Monaco, we regretted his performance when we needed him,” the French tactician said on Thursday,” Gourcuff remarked during the news conference.


“And we saw against Saint-Etienne, a first half where he was disturbed. I knew it was not a physical problem but a confidence problem.


“I think the fact that he scored that goal, it did him a lot of good. After his achievement, he had a lot more influence in the game. A player is complex because confidence is very fragile,” Gourcuff concluded.
