The Paris Musketeers have signed edge rusher Giovanni Nanguy for the 2023 season. The 33-year-old veteran previously played a huge role in the Sea Devils’ success in the last two seasons. At 1,92 m and 105 kg, the Frenchman will line up next to Stanley Zeregbe, Edwin Elio or Vincent Buffet, making it one of the best position groups of the Musketeers.  

New challenge for renowned edge rusher

Nanguy amassed 11.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks in 15 games for the Sea Devils, making him one of the top-edge rushers of the last two years. Now, he heads back home to France.


Giovanni Nanguy is excited about his new challenge: "I am thrilled to join Paris because I get to play at home […]. I am also excited about this new challenge and of course, I want to help the French franchise build a name for itself. Our goal is to compete and win. […] I can’t wait to get to work."

His new head coach Marc Mattioli is happy to bring in such an athlete: "I am very excited to welcome Giovanni to our team. Giovanni has been a difference maker in this league for the last two years and is a great addition to our defensive front. He is a defensive end that can play in all situations because he is effective against the run as well as rushing the passer. […] He also has a wealth of experience, which allows him to have a great feel for what opposing offenses are trying to do. He is a mature guy off the field who has good leadership skills. I have really enjoyed getting to know Giovanni over the last few months. I am very pleased to have him on our team."

Before joining the European League of Football, Nanguy played for the Les Aigles Rouges, Elmshorn Fighting Pirates, Aix-en-Provence Argonautes, Lübeck Cougars, Spartiates d’Amiens and Léopards de Rouen. A veteran to be able to make a difference.
