After completing the move, Romao has urged the club’s fans not to relent on their support for the team which propelled the side to win the Ligue 2 and secure promotion to the top-flight.

“I followed what the club did last season, I saw the fan's backing - now we are in Ligue 1, there will surely be more difficult times and we will really need their support," Romao club website.
