After a week of discussion, it seems the Guinean forward Pascal Feindouno has convinced the Swiss team FC Sion to use him, starting from their next campaign.
“We have agreed on terms with Feindouno. But we will make the official announcement at the beginning of the new campaign,” an inside source from Sion’s board told Footafrica365.com on Thursday.
The 30-year-old forward has been struggling in his career over the past four seasons and had a poor record with Monaco in the Ligue 1, playing only five matches.
“You just saw a few of his amazing skills. He is an artist, a player who can make the difference. I brought him here just to see if he is still hungry for the game. He is still willing to invest in himself even if it’s in a smaller competition than the Ligue 1,” Feindouno’s coach, Laurent Roussey, said after a friendly game on Wednesday in which Feindouno made a huge impact.
Roussey coached the Guinean star during his best years, when he rose to stardom at Saint Etienne, making a remarkable impression while playing for Bordeaux, Lorient, and then Saint Etienne – winning the league title in 1999 and the France Cup in 2002.
Feindouno hopes to team up with his mentor to re-launch his career in Europe.
