“A worker, with a good burst of speed and who likes to make assists”. Jason Mbock describes his qualities, but readily concedes some weaknesses and areas in which he needs to improve. He recognizes, for example, that he still has to work on his finish and gain consistency.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder joined the ranks of Neuchâtel Xamax FCS in September. He was loaned by Angers SCO for a year. It will be his first experience abroad.
The new xamaxienne recruit is a pure product of the Clairefontaine training center. In 2017, he honed some of his talent at AS Monaco before joining Angers in 2019. While some doubt his loan to Neuchâtel Xamax, the Franco-Cameroonian is not of this opinion. Playing with the “red and black”, even in the Challenge League, is a great opportunity.
Asked about his near future, Jason Mbock has not yet mentioned his return to Angers. The native of Créteil claims to have his head and feet “100%” in Neuchâtel with, in the viewfinder, “the maximum ambition to return to the Super League”.
However, it is said that Nîmes and Stuttgart would observe very closely the evolution of the young winger. The person concerned said he was flattered, even though there was still nothing concrete.
Given his two passports, French and Cameroonian, who would have his preference if the Blues or the Indomitable Lions came knocking on his door? Jason Mbock responds without hesitation: “the Lions until the end”.
Aarau – Xamax: return to the scene of the feat
Neuchâtel Xamax FCS is visiting the Brügglifeld this Saturday. The den of FC Aarau will bring back good memories to the “red and black”. On a certain day in June 2019, Xamax had won his promotion to the Super League there after an incredible “comeback”.
The Neuchâtel club intends to extend its series of three victories in this 6e Challenge League round. The team hope not to repeat the few wanderings seen on Tuesday against Wil.
Some players will miss the call. This is particularly the case of Alan Rodriguez, suspended during the last meeting. Thibault Corbaz, Léo Farine, Noah Frick, Michael Kempter and Alexandre Pasche are injured. Igor Djuric, Maxime Dominguez and Dylan Dugourd are uncertain.
