Indomitable Lions and FC Nantes defender Jean Charles Castelletto scored one of his club’s six goals in the 3-3 thriller against AS Monaco in match day three of the French Ligue 1 championship but apologized to the fans at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau for initially announcing he wanted to leave the club.
Despite having a top moment with the club’s administration who are keen on keeping him against the player’s desire to leave, coach Pierre Aristouy gave Castelletto the notch to start in the tough home game.
Mostafa Mohamed put the host ahead after just five minutes, dispatching the early penalty with perfection before Castelletto added the second.
Castelletto pounced on a great cross to head home in his trademark marrowding movement into the box.
Though the goal doubled Nantes’ advantage on the night, However the former Stade Brestois sweeper didn’t celebrate as he rather opted to apologize.
Just when Nantes thought they were cruising to a first win of the season, unfortunately on loan Liverpool forward, Takumi Minamino pulled back midway into the first segment to start the comeback.
Though Mohamed completed his brace early in the second segment to restore Nantes’ two-goal cushion, their first victory was still delayed.
Second-half goals from Wissam Ben Yeddar just around the hour mark and Mohamed Boadu’s third goal for Monaco five minutes from regulation time ensured they shared the spoils at full-time.
The results further delays the Cannaries’ wait for a first win during the 2023/24 season while Monaco with seven points sits atop the Ligue 1 standings.
Nantes next outing will be at home to Marseille of compatriot Simon Ngapatdouetnbu.
