Tanguy Kouassi on the relaunch.
Two years after his arrival at Bayern Munich, the 20-year-old central defender will join Sevilla FC in the coming hours as announced by L'Équipe on Tuesday morning.
The French trained at PSG joins Andalusia to get more playing time and finally get his career off the ground.
Arriving free in Munich, he was transferred in exchange for a check estimated at nearly 20 million euros.
With Sevilla, Kouassi will have the heavy task of replacing another Frenchman, Jules Koundé, recruited by FC Barcelona.
The Andalusian club has always appreciated defenders from France, from Julien Escudé to Clément Lenglet via Adil Rami or Sébastien Squillaci.
A pure product of PSG training, Tanguy Kouassi left the capital in the summer of 2020, deciding to sign his first professional contract with Bayern Munich.
A departure which had caused the incomprehension of the fans, the Parisian management and Thomas Tuchel, his coach: “I had a lot of confidence.
He had a great future at this club.
He knows it, I told him: it was not the time for him to leave the club.
He could have played in the middle in number 6 or in central defense.
I can not understand.
It's hard to understand”.
In Bavaria, history did not go as planned by Tanguy Kouassi.
Hampered by several injuries, he hardly played in his first season (113 minutes of play, 6 appearances).
Last year, he only played 22 games in all competitions (9 starts, 874 minutes played).
In two years in Munich, Kouassi will have played only 80 minutes more than in three months at PSG (905 minutes), between December and March 2020, before the cessation of competitions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 19.
