Nantes coach Michel Der Zakarian has heaped praise on promising young striker Claudio Keseru.
The 20-year-old has been one of the few surprises for Les Canaris this season and has been a key player for his team that have reached the Coupe de France semi-finals.
"He is a very consistent player and proved it during 120 minutes against Sedan," Der Zakarian told Ouest-France.
"He has been useful and available for his team-mates, that is a big boost for us.
"He is mentally relaxed and physically in great form."
Nantes captain Mauro Cetto added: "We know that he can do very good things when he is self-confident.
"He is only 20 but has already played a lot of Ligue 1 matches.
"He has experienced things that have helped him to grow up quickly.
"He has to go on thinking about his football."
