Rennes: Genesio ready to land after Stéphan's departure


After the departure of Julien Stéphan, Stade Rennais would have found a new coach in the person of Bruno Genesio.

Stade Rennais will not be late.

According to the information of our colleagues from the newspaper


, Bruno Genesio was chosen to succeed Julien Stéphan on the bench of the 9th in Ligue 1. Stéphan (40 years old), tired and "at the end of the race" according to a relative of the Breton club, handed in his resignation to its leaders on Monday.
