Alidu Seidu featured in Clermont Foot away defeat to Reims

Black Stars defender Alidu Seidu featured for French Ligue 1 side Clermont Foot in their away defeat to Reims on Sunday in the matchday two fixtures of the 2023/24 season.

The Black Stars workaholic defender despite putting up a good account of his defensive capabilities was on the losing side at the Stade Auguste-Delaune (Reims).

Alidu, 23, lasted the entire 90 minutes of the game and saw his side taste their second defeat in a roll following a 4-2 home defeat to AS Monaco in the opening round fixtures.

Reims wasted not too long into the game as Zimbabwean International, Marshall Munetsi shot into the lead in the 17th minutes when he directed Amir Richardson’s dangerous cross into the back of the net.

Clermont Foot however came close to equalising in the 32nd minutes through Grejohn Kyei’s first-time effort but a brilliant diving save from stopper Yehvann Diouf prevented the away side the needed goal.

Danish forward Mohammed Daramy settled the match in the 84 minutes – six minutes from full time having connected home Junya Ito assist.

The defeat extends Alidu Seidu and his team’s concerning league winless run to two matches – they have conceded 6 goals out of which they have scored 2.

The results now leave the Red and White’s side in the relegation zone on 18th position with no points after two matches.

Clermont Foot will hope to revive their poor start of the campaign when they host Metz next weekend in the matchday three fixtures at the Stade Gabriel Montpied.

Seidu Alidu, despite his club poor run of form, has enjoyed 180 minutes so far.

Coach Chris Hughton will be expectance of the players’ consistency in performance wise as the Black Stars will need his services in Ghana’s last game of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Central African Republic in September.
