Stade Rennais technical director happy to add ‘offensive weapon’ Kamaldeen Sulemana to the team
Technical Director of French club, Stade Rennais, Florian Maurice has extolled the qualities new signing Kamaldeen Sulemana brings to the team.
The Ligue 1 club beat Dutch champions Ajax and other Premier League clubs to the signature of the 19-year-old in the summer transfer window.
And according to Maurice, the addition of the Ghana international will boost their attack for the upcoming season.
“We wanted to strengthen our attack. He is a player capable of evolving both on the sides but also in the axis. He scores goals and knows how to make the last pass. He has enormous qualities, he has speed and percussion. He can make differences,” he told the club’s website.
“It was important for us to bring an additional offensive weapon to the team. This is good news for the club. He is a great recruit because he is a player who was in demand. We managed to do what was necessary to attract him to Rennes,” he added.
“Which at the beginning was not necessarily something obvious. We were in competition with clubs like Ajax and others in the Premier League. We show that we are able to attract players of this standing. It is a satisfaction for the whole club.
“I have known him since he was in Denmark. He’s a player we’ve followed all season. Now he will have to work and get up to speed because he does not know the Ligue 1 Uber Eats. It’s a tough championship. It’s up to him to integrate well. He has some notions of French so it can go quite quickly. “
