Membership: Taking part in time, use, accidents, and many others, how is Dagba’s mortgage to Strasbourg going?

Loaned with out an choice to purchase at RC Strasbourg this season, Colin Dagba has discovered some taking part in time in Alsace. 4 months after his arrival, the 24-year-old right-back is struggling to seduce, between bodily glitches and indifference. We requested a couple of inquiries to Florian Zobenbiehler, a journalist who labored for the Alsace newspaper.

Earlier than leaving PSG this summer time, Dagba was one of many least used gamers throughout the 21-22 season (350 minutes of play). Is he discovering time to play in Strasbourg this season?

He clearly has extra taking part in time than in Paris but it surely stays low for the second. He’s at 466 minutes however that solely represents a 3rd of the minutes performed by Racing after 15 days … Of the 15, he participated in six video games as a starter and three instead. The fault of his bodily glitches but in addition his efficiency.

Strasbourg have developed three behind more often than not on this first a part of the season. Through which register is Dagba used when he performs? Which scheme appears to go well with him greatest?

He has at all times performed proper piston till now. Strasbourg went to 4 behind within the final recreation however he was injured so it’s unattainable to know concretely if he’s higher in a aspect position greater than a piston. However in my view, it’s higher if he must defend “much less”, ie by being a piston.

Along with Dagba, Strasbourg additionally loaned Pierre-Gabriel final summer time to cowl the identical place. Does one of many two have already got a bonus within the hierarchy?

“For me, Pierre-Gabriel brings extra ensures defensively however Dagba brings extra offensively”

To set the context, for the previous two seasons, Strasbourg had Frédéric Guilbert on mortgage. He gave full satisfaction on the sector and was appreciated by the general public whether or not for his performances and since he knew talk, leaning on his sympathetic aspect. He had put the supporters in his pocket. He arrived in his final yr of contract at Aston Villa and the membership needed to promote him, at an unimaginable value for Racing. Strasbourg additionally didn’t need to wait till the very finish of the switch window for it to quiet down like final yr and subsequently made the selection to take Dagba, a priori instantly obtainable and prepared.

He needed to arrive to start out whereas being below strain from Karol Fila, in whom the membership believes for the longer term. He arrived at first of July… Besides that he arrived injured and didn’t participate in any pleasant match, nor within the first league matches. He made his first late-game look on Matchday 5, August 31… So ought to Racing have waited to take Guilbert? Nonetheless, his harm and that of Karol Fila led Racing to mortgage one other right-back with Pierre-Gabriel and now the 2 are in competitors (+ Fila returning!).

Within the final two matches the place the 2 gamers have been obtainable (Ajaccio and Marseille), it was Pierre-Gabriel who began the match… However within the earlier matches it was Dagba. It is arduous to say which one is in entrance of the opposite proper now. For me, Pierre-Gabriel brings extra ensures defensively however Dagba brings extra offensively.

Dagba has typically been hampered by accidents in recent times with PSG. What state is he in athletically?

For the accidents, it continues… As I defined above, he was injured all through the preparation. Behind, he misses a match in Montpellier in September and the one towards Lorient final weekend.

What’s the total feeling that predominates amongst Strasbourg followers? Disillusioned by the participant he could also be?

“He arrived with the PSG label however doesn’t even make a distinction in Strasbourg”

Supporters and followers are disenchanted for a number of issues. Already, his bodily glitches which have led Racing have recruited another participant from elsewhere. Additionally, as a result of he arrived with the PSG label however he does not even make a distinction in Strasbourg. Or no less than not sufficient. He additionally exudes a barely annoying nonchalance once you play the upkeep… It is his fashion but it surely does not do any good for the general public, accustomed to seeing Guilbert tear himself away final yr.

His mortgage doesn’t embody a purchase order choice. Nonetheless, can we think about Strasbourg attempting to barter a everlasting switch subsequent summer time if we depend on its present dynamic?

On what he reveals up to now, personally I would not recruit him if I used to be Marc Keller. Afterwards, you need to see him proceed whereas being in full possession of his means, not like presently. Laborious to say on this case. You additionally need to know the necessities of PSG if the door opens for a everlasting switch.

NB: Many due to Florian Zobenbiehler (@FloZobenbiehler) for his availability.
