Transfers, official: Camara signs for Sochaux

The Stade Rennais Football Club has officially announced the transfer of Abdoul Camara to Sochaux. The duration of the contract offered to the U21 international, also coveted by Valenciennes, Saint-Étienne and Brest, hasn’t been disclosed.

As we revealed, Camara had been dropped out of the professional squad by Frédéric Antonetti at the beginning of last week following – notably – his behaviour in the dressing room during the defeat against Montpellier in Ligue 1 (4-0) when he had been replaced at half time. The Corsican manager had then explained that he wouldn’t oppose the departure of the young left winger (21 y/o).

A Gambardella Cup winner in 2008, Abdoul Camara played his first minutes with the pros at the Stade Vélodrome, during the final game week of the 2008-2009 season (defeat 4-0). Loaned to Vannes the following season, he started five games in Ligue 1 with the “Rouge et Noir” in 2010-2011, for 24 matches played in total. In that season, he scored his only goal with the Stade Rennais, during the Breton’s club large victory against Cannes (7-0).
