Victorien Angban and Metz have just booked their ticket to play in the French top-flight starting next season, and he wants to stay.
Ivorian international midfielder Victorien Angban is one of the many footballers Chelsea has loaned around the world. He has yet to play a single game for the Blues but has been loaned four times already.
And now with Metz, he has joined the French Ligue 1 after the team won the second division and he wants to stay.
“I feel good here on a personal level,” Angban told Goal.
“I hope everything will be fine. Currently, I’m still waiting to hear from Metz and their option [to make my move permanent]. The higher-ups at the club are in talks with Chelsea to try and keep me.”
“If both parties agree, I would like to stay. I want to play in Ligue 1 with Metz. Chelsea followed me with regularity, they called me a lot, but the chiefs at Metz want me absolutely. I hope that they will come to an agreement,” he added.
“It went well even though it was difficult for me at first.”
“With the group we have, everything is in place to make my job easier. I played in Belgium, Spain… and the French Ligue 2 has a really good level,” he continued.
“It’s both tactical and physical. I liked it.”
