Sports Rennes has chosen its new coach!
PSG slips to 3rd after losing to Monaco; Lille stays top
PARIS — Days after routing Barcelona in the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain lost 2-0 at home to Monaco to fall back down to earth and into third place in the French league. Fourth-place Monaco was hardly troubled on Sunday as it won for the ninth time in the last 10 games to move just two points behind defending champion PSG, which now trails Lyon by one point and league leader Lille by four. There are 12 games left. Monaco did the “double” on PSG following its 3-2 league win at home in late November.
The day after Julien Stéphan's surprise resignation, Stade Rennais is decided. Since Sunday afternoon, owner François Pinault has joined with club president Nicolas Holveck and sporting director Florian Maurice to decide on the new coach. According to L’Equipe, it is Bruno Genesio! Gourvennec outstripped Maurice had proposed two technicians he knows very well: Genesio, with whom he worked at OL (when he was responsible for recruiting), and his former teammate Jocelyn Gourvennec, a Finistérien who played at the Stade Rennais twice during his playing career. It is the first city, free after its experience in China (Beijing Guoan) which was therefore chosen by the leaders. As the sports media reported, there are a few details to be worked out in negotiations on Tuesday afternoon. But Genesio, coach so contested by supporters of the Gones from 2015 to 2019 (who had given him the mocking nickname of "Pep Genesio"), will try to revive the training led by Eduardo Camavinga, who points to 9th place in Ligue 1 with only one victory acquired in 2021.
