Nantes: Kita buries the sale to Landreau

If we want to talk about it, it’s around a table like a real business leader. Some things go too far. Mr. Landreau came to my office 7 years ago. He wanted to be deputy president of the club and fire everyone including my son. I told him no and 15 days later he was coach of Lorient. What did my son do wrong? He surely has a higher level than this kind of characters. It’s not serious Mr. Landreau.”

Nantes: Kita explains why there is no sporting director
Waldermar Kita in Rothen ignites on RMC: “I tried with a former sports director. But there were always problems with the coach, there are clubs where it didn’t go well. The two have to be well-knit, but I have the impression that the sports director wants the coach’s place and the coach is wary of the sports director. Who does the recruitment? There are choices to be made and the problem it’s that the coach has his voice and his tips, but so does the sporting director. It’s very difficult today to find one.”

Waldermar Kita in Rothen ignites on RMC: “There were ups and downs. […] From time to time I get a little pissed off. But when you’re not there on a daily basis, you can’t tell what’s going well or not. You try to see from afar and you keep the financial management. I am into observation and when I no longer have contact with people I get bored very quickly. But when I don’t have it, too bad, that’s how it is. […] Today there are a lot of people around the young people, we can no longer talk to them easily. The most important thing in a club is human contact. You shouldn’t cheat with the players.”
Nantes: Kita on his daily involvement
Waldermar Kita in Rothen ignites on RMC: “I love people, I love contact with players. But not all coaches like that. You shouldn’t blame me for not talking to players if the coach doesn’t want it. I manage from afar, I manage financially that everyone gets paid at the end of the month. I kept my financial promises on salaries and bonuses. It’s up to me to have the flexibility to adapt to what the coach wants. If he wants me not to be there, I’m not there.”

Waldermar Kita in Rothen ignites on RMC: “To extend, we must already finish the season. We will already finish the season, we will sit down to talk.

Everyone is happy with him, I have no problem with him. I don’t have much of a relationship with him because I’m not often at the club, it’s often my son Franck who manages.”
