When we analyze budgets, we can ask ourselves questions. But when we know the efforts that the RCL made to attract Seko, to make him want to come and be part of the humble and ambitious project of the RCL, we can better understand the reasons which pushed Seko to take up the Lensois challenge. RC Lens is attractive in terms of passion, of the public, in terms of structures, in terms of game identity. It is the biggest investment in the history of RC Lens (10 M €, Editor's note) for get the transfer from Udinese. The level of play he displays today, he went to seek it through work. These are the values ​​of the club, the mining values ​​so obviously it matched with the leaders and the people of Lens. Seko is humble and ambitious, just like his club.

If Seko has to go to a French club scheduled for European competitions or to a large foreign club, that will happen naturally, it is the logical next step, he is ambitious. But he can also choose to extend the Lensois adventure, because he feels good there, he is happy and fulfilled (…) Seko is under contract with RC Lens so this question is of course up to Lensois leaders. to answer them, even if I have my little idea. But no matter how much a club will pay to sign Seko Fofana, the only thing I can say is that he will make a sporting affair, “he blurted out. Seko Fofana has not finished talking about him.
