Jocelyn Gourvennec declines the post of coach of the Blue
Heard Wednesday morning by the commission responsible for choosing the new coach of the French women’s team (Jean-Michel Aulas, Marc Keller, Aline Riera and Laura Georges), as we revealed it to you, Jocelyn Gourvennec declined the position this Saturday. The 50-year-old Breton technician has informed Marc Keller of his choice, preferring to focus on club coaching opportunities.
Asked directly by the commission responsible for making a “recommendation” to Philippe Diallo, interim president of the FFF, for the succession of Corinne Deacon, Gourvennec had seduced his audience on Wednesday. But in the last few hours the priority choice of the FFF fell on Hervé Renard. The current coach of Saudi Arabia should be the new boss of the Blue, provided he manages to free himself from his contract, which runs until 2027, with the Saudi Federation. For this, he must discuss with his president.
