Georges Gope-Fenepej is one of the most prolific footballers from Oceania currently, playing at the 2nd tier side Le Mans in France. The 20-time capped international for New Caledonia already scored three times for the club in the 2019/20 season, but some injuries prevented Gope-Fenepej to do even better.
The New Caledonian forward played his match of 2020 after almost two months; another injury put the player out of the lines for Le Mans and stopped a good run for 31-year old player that scored three times in six matches after he recovered from another serious injury that made him lost the start of the season.
Since 29th November, 2019 the New Caledonian international did take part in match. This bad moment ended when he entered the pitch yesterday (24th Jan) as a substitute in the second half in a game for Ligue 2 against Valenciennes. Le Mans ended up to lose the match away from home by 1-0 against Valenciennes – the club will need a lot the services of Gope-Fenepej since they are battling at the bottom of the table staying just in the 17th position, just one position above the relegation zone.
Le Mans will be back to action next week against AS Nancy-Lorraine at home ground and Gope-Fenepej is expected to be used in some part of the encounter, as the player is still slowly getting back to his best shape.
