In search of a sports director since the departure of Michael Emenalo last summer, AS Monaco has been trying in recent days to attract Olivier Létang. Discarded from the presidency of Stade Rennais on February 7 by the Pinault family, owner of the Breton club, Létang would have been responsible for restructuring the sports sector of the Club du Rocher.
A position he held when he officiated at PSG between 2012 and 2017 first as an assistant and then as number one. But the former Rennes president declined the Monegasque offer. It is not the first time that Monaco and Létang have spoken to each other. The two parties had already moved closer between December 2015 and January 2016 but without any agreement being reached.
The 47-year-old leader, thinking about his future, takes his time to find the right project. He would see himself recovering from the collar in an ambitious club, with more or less the attributions he had in Rennes.
In the meantime, Létang has not cut football. He was in Madrid on Wednesday night where he witnessed Manchester City's 2-1 victory over Real Madrid in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League.
