Collaboration between Alaves and Sochaux is now official for the three next seasons :
Mmmmh I really hope that this will benefit our two teams. I am quite optimistic (even though I do not understand why our actual direction is staying) about what you said about Baskonia but a lot of supporters are very negative and consider that it's the death of our club. So I hope this mercato will prove me right and that it will not only be our young and talented players that will go to Alaves. By the way, do you know some players from Alaves or NK Rudes that could play for Sochaux next season in order to gain experience ? In Sochaux, we really have a quite good generation of young players but I think they are not ready yet to play in Liga.
Here are some of our youngest talented players (some of them have won the french youth cup in 2015) :
Jean Ruiz - central defender or defensive miedfield, 20 years old, 24 games and 3 goals, contacts with Sévilla (rumors in french newpapers)
Maxence Lacroix - central defender, 18 years old, contacts with Barcelona (rumors in french newspapers)
Maxence Prévot - goalkeeper, 21 years old, 55 games in 2 seasons : really talented but end of contract
Aksel Aktas - offensive miedfield, 18 years old, the youngest player that won the youth french cup (he had 15 years old)
Jeando Fuchs - defensive miedfield, 20 years old, 93 games in 3 seasons
And also : Bryan Lasme (central forward or winger, 19 years old), Jason Pendant (left defender, 21 years old) and Sofiane Daham (central miedfeld, 22 years old)
Last time, in my list of players formed into our youth academy that you might have heard of, I have forgotten El-Hadji Diouf and Ivan Perisic who both have actually begun their career with Sochaux.
