Arrived last summer in the capital, Mickael Ivaldi immediately imposed himself with the Soldats Roses. The 33-year-old hooker has played 20 games this season, including 18 as a starter.
Only the former Montpellier (2013-2016) and Lyon (2016-2022) would not be against leaving, especially to find the south of France, as indicated by L'Indépendant and L'Equipe. However, Thomas Lombard does not hear it that way. The general manager of Stade Français does not want to part with the one who has become part of his team, one year from the end of his contract.
“Today the door is closed (to a departure of Mickael Ivaldi), there is no discussion, assures Thomas Lombard to L'Equipe. We are above all focused on our trip to Stade Rochelais (Sunday) and our end of the season with an upcoming play-off.
