Hervé Renard, bad luck


By: Manu Tournoux

Hervé Renard, who participated in the recovery project at FC Sochaux-Montbéliard, was in Bonal for the first home match of the Lionceaux in National, Friday evening. The coach of Les Bleues saw a 3-0 defeat, as in his last match with the Doubienne team.

After the Women’s World Cup, with the elimination of the French team in the quarter-finals after an epic penalty shootout against the Matildas, Hervé Renard is enjoying a well-deserved vacation. The Blue coach will resume in two weeks for matches in the Women’s Nations League, against Portugal and Austria, on September 22 and 26.

Renard wanted to attend the first match of FC Sochaux-Montbéliard at home this season, in National, he who financially supported the recovery project led in particular by the former president of the club Jean-Claude Plessis. Despite the great atmosphere put on by the Lionceaux supporters, their team lost 3-0 to Goal FC (the club based in the Lyon region). Oswald Tanchot’s players had started with a defeat against Red Star the previous weekend.

Sochaux supporters remembered that the double African champion coach had left the FCSM in a 3-0 defeat in 2014 against Evian Thonon Gaillard, Daniel Wass having scored twice for the Savoyards. Hervé Renard, after the resignation of Éric Hély, had revived the Cubs in the fight for maintenance but without succeeding in avoiding relegation to Ligue 2. He has since been very attached to this club.
