The 26-year-old Cameroon defender Nicolas Nkoulou recently sign a four-year deal with French Ligue 1 side Lyon. Nicolas Nkoulou is noted for his defensive role in Monaco and his sense of leadership in the national team making him an outstanding player.
In an exclusive interview Nkoulou admitted that he has also held discussions with Italian Serie A side Roma.
“I was in advanced talks with AS Roma but I do not regret my choice,” he said.
“I come with a lot of ambition and pride. I’m here because Lyon will allow me to grow and move forward
“Five years ago I chose Marseille rather than Lyon because of [the then coach] Didier Deschamps – but now destiny wants our paths to cross again and that’s important.
“I need to feel loved and wanted and that’s the case here in Lyon.”
As Lyon confirmed the signing of Nicolas Nkoulou from Marseille, has eventually paved the way for Samuel Umtiti to join Barcelona.
Nicolas Nkoulou is a discipline and self determine player who always gives his best in his club and the national team.This great move to Lyon will probably give this defender the opportunity to outperform and attain that level of self actualisation.
