Speaking as part of an exclusive interview with Get French Football News, ex-Angers SCO Communications and Marketing Assistant, Matt Proctor, praised the personality and character of French midfielder Baptiste Santamaria.
“I’m the same age as Santamaria so we got on quite well, he’s a really great person. I distinctly remember that one day he came into the office asking for some help organising a charity event. The event was setup in the car park of the training ground where lots of kids from the local hospital came down to enjoy anything from football freestylers to magicians.”
“The whole event was run directly by Santamaria, he was the first person there to setup the tables and the last person to leave taking the bin bags. I’m not sure why that seemed surprising to me, as in modern football we tend to forget they are just people like us and it was a great indication to me of the superb characters that are at the club.”
