ATAN­GANA RE­PRIEVE PAYS OFF

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

IF IT wasn’t for his con­tract Nigel Atan­gana would have been a ca­su­alty of Paul Cook’s revo­lu­tion at Pom­pey – but the midfielder’s new boss likes what he sees.

Few of last sea­son’s play­ers re­main af­ter Cook’s sum­mer clearout.

But Atan­gana has cer­tainly made the most of his re­prieve, start­ing in Cook’s first League Two game in charge – a 3-0 vic­tory over Dag & Red.

Cook said:“It was im­por­tant to cre­ate a new en­vi­ron­ment and the best way to do it was to re­move the lads who had been here.

“Nigel was one of a few that had a con­tract re­main­ing. I like his energy – there is more from him to come.”
