Loïs Diony’s adventure turns sour at the Red Star in Belgrade

“The leaders told me that the Red Star was seen as a religion here. That’s why I will do everything to put a smile on the face of the fans. I came here for the trophies and to play in the European Cup. » upon his arrival in Belgrade last July, Loïs Diony was full of ambition. But after a rather encouraging start, the striker loaned with option to buy by Angers don’t play at all. He was even dismissed by his coach, while the SCO does not want to recover him prematurely. A very difficult situation.

However, everything had started well. In a long interview with Mozzarsport, the 29-year-old displayed his ambitions and his desire to rub shoulders with the warm atmosphere of the Marakana. “Here, Etoile Rouge is a bit like Paris Saint-Germain in France. There will be opportunities. I also looked at the results of “Zvezda” last season with victories with three or four goals.

The Red Star no longer wants Diony

In the league, he had to wait for his sixth game to finally find the net. It will be his one and only SuperLiga goal in 8 games.

In reality, the Serbian club no longer wants him and has even removed him from its UEFA list but he will not be able to get rid of him like that.

“Diony had a chance to prove himself, but he just failed to fit in. He’s never picked up the pace since he’s been with us. The Red Star does not wait for anyone. The sooner you adapt to the conditions, the easier it is for you”, even dropped Dejan Stanković yesterday at a press conference, the coach of the current 2nd in the Serbian championship. The former Inter midfielder will have to take his troubles patiently because the loan of the former Stéphanois is likely to last until next June.

Angers doesn’t want to get it back either…

West France explains in his columns that the contract between Angers and the Red Star is not likely to be broken. “For now, Lois is staying at Red Star Belgrade”, confirms the player’s entourage to the local daily. The SCO has no intention of prematurely repatriating the striker, who is under contract with him until 2023. The DNCG scrutinizes the accounts of the French club very carefully, even framing its payroll. On the one hand, Angers does not have the means to bring back Diony, who in any case could not play again in France since the transfer window is over. He could therefore not be registered to evolve in L1 …
