Jean-Kévin Augustin, trained at PSG, bounces back in Basel

New season, new country for Jean-Kévin Augustin. The FC Nantes striker, whose contract with the Canaries expired on June 30, will freely join FC Basel, second in the last Swiss championship. It was the Basel club which announced it this Saturday, with a contract until 2025 for the former international hopeful.

“I’m happy to be here, I think it’s a really good team for me,” he said in a video relayed by club media. I saw the coach, the project that was set up, and I had a very good feeling directly with him. He was a great striker, we can understand each other very well. »

Victim of a “long Covid”

FC Basel is coached by Alexander Frei, a well-known name in Ligue 1 and Stade Rennais fans, where he played three seasons (117 games, 52 goals). “He hasn’t necessarily made the right choices in recent years, but we will work together to get him back to his true form,” said the Basel coach enthusiastically. By achieving this, we will have a very great player in Basel. »

Over the past two years, Jean-Kévin Augustin has played very little with FC Nantes. Victim of a “long Covid”, he had to be removed from the group in March 2021 before gradually making his return, but has only played 77 minutes this season, for 7 small starts. Trained at Paris Saint-Germain , which he left in 2017, the 25-year-old striker also played for Leipzig, Monaco and Leeds.
