Zapping Goal! soccer club OL, Stade Rennais: the figures of Bruno Genesio’s career in Ligue 1
Stade Rennais takes its first big hit of the summer transfer window. By stealing Steve Mandanda from OM, moreover for free, the Breton club has hit hard on the transfer market but intends to continue its quest for reinforcements, especially if Alfred Gomis leaves (an English club is in the running). Under the rule of Florian Maurice, two central defenders are thus targeted.
It is not so much the ambitions of Stade Rennais in the transfer window that make local supporters talk but rather their propensity to live in isolation. At the start of the week, we were treated to several bursts of disgruntled fans about the countless closed doors imposed during the preparation. The arrival of Mandanda (37) obeys this same logic of heightened confidentiality.
“In Marseille, Mandanda took pictures with the supporters and spoke with the journalists. In Rennes, they hide it and let it out through a back door. We have the impression that we should above all not share anything with the supporters, tweeted the journalist from Ouest France Laurent Frétigné, summarizing the local general thought. But let the supporters be reassured, everything will be on the media club. What are we complaining about? With this exacerbated culture behind closed doors, the club will be ready for the 8th wave and matches without supporters. »

While Steve Mandanda (OM, 37) signed a two-year contract for Stade Rennais just this Wednesday evening, the Breton club’s supporters are up against their leaders. Too intimate for their tastes.
