Basketball: Laurent Vila will leave Cholet at the end of the season

Laurent Vila and Cholet, it's almost over. Appointed in 2021 to take over from Erman Kunter, the 48-year-old technician is obviously not thanked by the CB, currently sixth in Betclic Elite, qualified for the play-offs in 2022 and 2023 and unfortunate finalist in the Fiba Europe Cup last season. Quite the opposite. “Following the good sporting results of Laurent Vila and his staff over the last three seasons, the management of Cholet Basket began a discussion at the beginning of January in order to propose a contract extension to Laurent, whose initial contract will end at the end of this season. After various discussions around the overall project proposed by the club for the coming seasons, Laurent Vila expressed the choice not to accept the new collaboration proposal formulated by Cholet Basket. The Club Management has therefore taken note of this decision which it respects and expresses its gratitude for Laurent's commitment and contribution to the sporting performances of recent seasons,” we explain in a press release from the Mauges club.

Who will replace him ? The answer is not yet known, but according to information from Ouest France, Fabrice Lefrançois appears to be a “very credible” option, he who currently serves as Vila's deputy. Mickaël Hay (ex-Blois) and Julien Mahé (Saint-Quentin) are others. “Fabrice has the advantage of knowing the house and we know him too, it’s always easier. But there is no private preserve, the position is really open and the phone of Guillaume Costentin (the sports director) is already heating up,” slips the president of the CB, Jérôme Mérignac. Note that the future destination of Laurent Vila is no more known than the identity of his successor.
