The divorce between Stade Rennais and Bruno Genesio is now official. The Breton club and the former Lyon coach ended their collaboration this Sunday by “mutual agreement”. The Breton team has had a string of poor results in recent months and is in a sad 13th place in Ligue 1. Julien Stéphan replaces Bruno Genesio and signs his return to the Rouge et Noir, he who already managed Rennes between 2018 and 2021.
According to information from L'Equipe, before his departure, the Breton technician wanted to integrate the former player of the France team, Samir Nasri, into his staff, more precisely as an assistant. The former Arsenal or Manchester City attacking midfielder has never coached. The Marseillais has been retired since 2021.
