Angers sign 'keeper Michel Ligue 1 Conforama > News | 16/08/2016

Angers SCO have signed former Nîmes glovesman Mathieu Michel - on a three-year deal worth a reported €1m - to cover first-choice 'keeper Alexandre Letellier's six-month injury absence.

Just two days before Angers SCO's Ligue 1 opener away to Montpellier, Alexandre Letellier fell awkwardly in training and was quickly diagnosed with a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament that will keep him out of action for at least six months.

Quick-fire signing

The club moved quickly to find a replacement and on Monday announced the signing of Mathieu Michel from Ligue 2 side Nîmes Olympique. The 24-year-old, who was the main man in goal with 37 appearances as Nîmes finished 14th in Ligue 2 last season, will be in competition for a starting spot with Denis Petric, the Slovenian 'keeper who played all 90 minutes of Angers' 1-0 defeat in Montpellier on Saturday night.

The club, who have also signed Pablo Martinez, Baptiste Santamaria, Karl Toko Ekambi and Mateo Pavlovic this summer, spent a reported €1m to clinch Michel's signature on a three-year deal.
