Will Still, the serious accusation


By: Manu Tournoux

Will Still, the Reims coach, accused journalists who associated him with Sunderland of tarnishing his image.

Still has been linked with the vacant manager’s position at Championship club Sunderland, a position currently held by former Queens Park Rangers boss Michael Beale. The Reims coach said the information was false and damaged his reputation.

Still wanted to clarify the situation in comments provided to Gazete van Antwerpen : “I don’t know which French-speaking newspaper invented this story, but it certainly tarnished my image. Now I know journalists can make or break you. The article was also quickly picked up in England. Suddenly I was in all the tabloids. »

“Everyone thought I had offered myself to Sunderland. (That I wasn’t honest, so to speak. And that I wasn’t trustworthy. But I would never offer myself to another club. I’m not like that. I have too much respect for the people I work with on this. It’s a shame that the story has been blown out of proportion to this extent.”
