7. Jean-Charles Castelleto

Disappointing in the Coupe de France final against Toulouse on Saturday (1-5), Jean-Charles Castelletto made a damning admission. The Cameroonian defender of FC Nantes admitted that his team underestimated Toulouse, which cost them dearly.

“ This season, we played against teams much stronger than us, and we were able to cope, said the Cameroonian defender. Our plan didn't work; maybe we were overconfident. This Toulouse team, we thought, was not strong enough; we should perhaps have backed down a little more, waited more, and done differently. I hope we understand that today we are not a good team and are not all at the level. We must quickly get up to speed and seek something else with desire and determination".

8. Joel Matip 

After 7 good years spent at Liverpool, Cameroonian defender Joël Matip is expected to leave the Merseyside this summer after being transfer listed by the club.

He has been offered to 3 Italian clubs, i.e., Roma, Juventus, and AC Milan. At 31, the former Schalke 04 could start a new adventure in a third major European championship should he move to Serie A.
