In the nursery of talent at Stade Rennais, there is of course Eduardo Camavinga, the youngest scorer for the Blues since 1914 and absent this Saturday. There is also Yann Gboho. He is not yet 20, he will have them on January 14th.
Little known yet, the Rennes attacking midfielder came out of the woods in just a few days. Holder for the first time in the Champions League Wednesday at Chelsea when nobody expected him, the Franco-Ivorian was still at the Parc des Princes. As in London three days earlier, he is one of the few Britons to have stood out in the Park.
Just before the break (44th), it was he who forced Keylor Navas to relax to release his shot. It was one of the rare shots on target for Rennes. Released shortly before the hour mark (56th), Gboho did not have the opportunity to leave Rennes, tired, from its torpor. Stéphan who believes in him wants to preserve him.
In just a few days facing two good best, the kid passed through Rouen before arriving in Brittany in 2013 has in any case made a name: “He is confusing, talented, good at one on one. It still needs to grow, but it is a young talent that we will continue to support, ”his coach Julien Stephan already told us during the Champions Trophy in 2019 in China.
This match against Paris, the international U16 and U18 – he chose France rather than the Ivorian selection – had checked it carefully. It was an opportunity for him to remember the good memories of a club that did not really want him. Just two years ago, the boy was at the heart of the case of PSG ethnic files among his young people. In 2018, his name was mentioned in the revelations of “Football Leaks” and he was one of these young players failed on these ethnic criteria by the PSG, finally ordered to pay a fine 100,000 euros by the LFP.
This Saturday, Gboho certainly did not have the opportunity to show by marking how much PSG was wrong to fail him. But the boy shouldn’t be overlooked in a generation of unbelievably promising 20-something kids.
