Montpellier confirm exits of five senior players including Junior Sambia, Mihailo Ristić & Nicholas Gioacchini

As confirmed by the club, Montpellier will release five senior players at the end of the contracts this summer after a disappointing 13th place finish in Ligue 1 this season, having once been a European contender. 

Thanking the players in a tweet this morning, MHSC announced full-back Mihailo Ristić (26), Cameroon international defender Ambroise Oyongo (29), midfielder-turned-right-back Junior Sambia (25), young American striker Nicholas Gioacchini (21) and Brazilian centre-back Matheus Thuler (23) would all depart. Between them, the group managed 125 appearances in all competitions this season.
