Football: in Rodez, the sacred well of Corrédor

Holding for the first time against Paris FC, on the 33rd day, never out of the starting lineup in the next four games, the 21-year-old striker is experiencing an express change of status within the workforce. And his goal in Bastia on Saturday 7 May, a 1-0 win that brings the Raf closer to maintenance, should confirm this rise.

The collective destinies aren’t the only ones being written with high stakes at the end of the season. Individual career paths can also tip over – or as the case may be – from performance in decisive matches. And it is exactly this express springboard that Killian Corredor is currently propelling himself on. The 21-year-old striker was used sparingly for most of the season, crushing the statutes, with a frenzy reminiscent of his unbridled energy on the pitch.

First established against Paris FC (0-1, J33), he has not left the starting line-up since then. In the context of a lack of results and disappointing competition, this profession might seem like a standard choice, but the player who has passed the training center of Toulouse is gradually establishing itself, as a must.

“Because I am young, I bring carelessness. I don’t necessarily think about context. I only think about playing football, having fun and taking my chance.he had said, about his debut as a starter.

Versatile and decisive

He brought a little more, because with his races and his constant burst of energy, the Entraygues player has given new life to a team that has lost confidence and has already been adopted by an amateur audience for the generosity of his efforts.

Killian Corredor also proved useful for his versatility as he was used by his coach in both the attacking double, top of the traditional 3-5-2, and right attacking midfielder in the 5-4-1 set. in the last two games.

Above all, he was decisive in an important period. Already a goalscorer against Nancy (1-1), for his second appearance in the starting lineup, he did it again on Saturday in Bastia and gave his team the victory (1-0) in stoppage time. A feat all the more important as it delivers success almost synonymous with maintenance, as the Raf has a three-point lead and a better goal difference than Quevilly, the play-off, for the final day of the season.

“We will remember this victory in Bastia for a long time”, Laurent Peyrelade, the coach, launched into Furiani’s wingspan. And certainly the identity of the goalscorer. At a time when thoughts are brewing for next season’s squad, Killian Corredor is building a better place within the hierarchy of blood and gold offensives, amid a struggling Arni Vilhjalmsson to confirm his first promises, from a Malaly Dembélé whose generosity is not enough to make people forget their clumsiness, from a Florian David now relegated to a prankster and from a Clément Depres who is once again hampered by physical problems.

Soon a professional contract?

But that would require his contractual status to evolve, he who joined the Raf a year ago, without signing a professional contract. But in this area too, everything could change quickly, according to Gregory Ursule, the general manager.

“When he came to us, we made an agreement that is still ongoing. And it wasn’t a one-year deal, but medium-term, he recently explained. His arrival at Rodez was a two-way sports bet, which he won. So do we. And he is rewarded. † Enough to suggest that Killian Corredor’s story with the Raf is on track to move forward.
