The Beninese goalkeeper, who had been in the goals of the Niortais Chamois (in Ligue 2) for six seasons, is thus getting over an important level. He who achieved a very good start to the season.
After a first outing against Bordeaux ended on a 3-0 defeat, less than 48 hours after signing at the very end of the transfer window, Allagbé has the opportunity to demonstrate his qualities for his first time at the Gaston-Gérard stadium on Friday for the Ligue 17th gameday against the leader Rennes.
“It’s true that we make a bet. Because he discovers Ligue 1. But it’s a calculated bet. He will bring us his freshness, his fighting spirit“. Believes Grégory Coupet, the goalkeeping coach of the Dijon club, current last in the rankings.
