🇫🇷 Français

New Caledonia’s Jekob Jeno made his first ever appearance as starter in a French Ligue 2 match. The 21-year-old midfielder played 86 minutes in Grenoble’s 1-0 win over Chamois Niortais last Tuesday and his performance was praised by fans and coach Vicente Hognon.

“Jekob Jeno? I’ve been eager to make him a starter since I arrived, but we have to go slowly and gradually. In any case, the staff likes him, I like him, he’s a good kid,” revealed Hognon after the match. You can check his game stats by clicking here.

Jeno joined Grenoble Foot 38 at the beginning of the season to be part of “Grenoble B”, but this year he got a bigger role in the team, as he became part of the main squad. Unfortunately, he was not called-up to represent New Caledonia at FIFA World Cup qualifiers to be held in Qatar next month.
