Comminges: 'Paul Sturrock is why I decided to come to Southend'
Miguel Comminges has had a few injuries, playing only 4 times in the last 18 months, and championship side Cardiff City have been looking to get him off the wage bill, he was on loan at Carlisle earlier this season, and has ended up at Roots Hall where he made his debut in the 2-1 defeat to Cheltenham Town, coming on after an hour off the subs bench to replace Louie Soares.
And the 28-year-old Guadelope boy, who he has picked up 15 caps with, said hi to the Blues faithful by setting up Barry Corr's tenth goal of the season which sadly came too late to help grab a point.
However, he's glad to playing footy again and working with his former manager at Swindon Town, Paul Sturrock, the Wiltshire Robins making him their player of the yar in 2008, and he joins Captian Craig Easton, Blair Sturrock, and most of the Shrimpers squad, as ex-Luggy players!
Comminges told www.southendunited.co.uk: "Paul Sturrock brought me to England before when he was with Swindon, I played with him for six months before he left to go to Plymouth and he was a good manager. This is why I decided to come to Southend to try and get back on track as I have been injured for a long time. This is a good opportunity for me to try and get some games and try and help the team."
Miguel was spotted by Sturrock on a scouting trip to France and he was playing for Stade de Reims, so let's hope he turns out as good as that other
Luggy import, Bilel Mohsni.
For now, after just missing out on back-to-back 2-0 away wins, he is looking forward to helping the Shrimpers nearer the play-off zone.
Comminges continued: "The division is so tight if we can get a win against Chesterfield on Saturday we are back on track."
And getting back on the international scene?
He concluded: "I haven't played with them for a while because of injuries but I would like to again at some point. My prority though at the moment is to find my level again and do well for Southend."
