The Trial of Pancrate

Owen Coyle has been taking a look at French winger Fabrice Pancrate and the Clarets gaffer is reported to have offered him a trial at Turf Moor

Pancrate, 29 recently left Paris Saint-Germain and is currently a free agent.



The Paris-born Frenchman, started his professional career with Louhans-Cuiseaux in 1999 before joining Guingamp in 2000.In August 2002 he signed for Le Mans before joining Paris Saint-Germain in 2004

He then played for Real Betis after signing for them on loan in 2007 and played his first La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao in February, 2007. Another loan spell at Sochaux followed in the 2007-8 season and he was finally released by PSG after spending five years with the club.

He appears to be quite a versatile player able to play in midfield, on the right wing or as a central striker.

Stoke and Wolves were also keen to make a summer move for him earlier in the year but that interest seems to have fizzled out. He was also attracting close attention from Everton and Hull over the last twelve months.

Another odd choice on paper but a trial is a trial I suppose with no commitment to sign ,so why not?

Could be interesting - The versatility sounds interesting. Could he maybe have that something different?

Agree with Dale about the versatility being interesting. Pity it doesn't include playing on the left.

It is understood now that former Paris St Germain striker Fabrice Pancrate is not currently in the country for talks with Burnley. The Clarets have dismissed links as ‘pure speculation’

Interest looks to be back on but sounds like the lazy beggar thought he could just swan over and sign without a trial. Coyle said today: 'He's been a top player in France for five years and these players are often reluctant to come on trial. He's got a good pedigree, but I'm not prepared to offer him something having not seen him in the flesh.'
