"Romain Pitau, Pascal Baills and Frédéric Mendy were informed today of their layoff as a precautionary measure of their functions within the men's professional team", specifies the club on social networks.

In addition, President Laurent Nicollin will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 3 p.m. to clarify the sporting situation of the club, 15th in L1 with only two points ahead of Strasbourg, the first relegated.

The timing of the announcement may, however, challenge, insofar as Pitau, Baills and Mendy hosted the training session this Tuesday afternoon as if nothing had happened.

To succeed him, many names circulate.

According to our information, one of the hottest leads leads to Michel Der Zakarian, tenant of this position between 2017 and 2021. The latter had left Montpellier for Brest where he was dismissed from his post on October 11, 2022.
