Now things go very quickly: on Saturday, before the match in Dresden, it was announced that Simon Vallet is looking for a new club – primarily in Turkey, but also in France. Three days later, the central defender reached an agreement with Hatayspor – and signed a three-year contract with the Turkish first division club.
In Antakya near the Syrian border, the 29-year-old meets another former 96: Mami Diouf also plays in Hatayipur, who was promoted to the Premier League in 2020, finished sixth last season and is now “on the experience of one.” The “defender” is delighted, as stated on the club’s website.
This ends with a less successful chapter. Kenan Kojak signed Valet as a dream player about a year ago, but he never really lived up to those hopes. In preparation for the current season, things suddenly went much better under new coach Jan Zimmermann … until the Guinean himself was injured in the first half of the match against Rostock.
Behind newcomer Julian Borner and captain Marcel Frank, Vallett was meanwhile only number three in the inner standings for central defenders. For 96, some money now free for planned transfers, Falette was one of the best players on the team. However, nothing is known about the conversion methods.
