Julien Stephan did not hear from her managers about a possible extension to the contract. Rennes's coach is currently in contact with the Breton club until 2020.
The Legends Gallery presentation – an interactive memory space at Roazhon Park – has relieved the atmosphere of Rennes this week. But it's not forgotten the billiard sequence caused by Hatem Ben Arma's statements after Guingamp (1-1, May 12). He had definitely attacked his coach on the proposed game, too limited to his taste, after exchanging with his president Olivier Létang.
Julien Stephan had responded two days before the trip to Strasbourg (2-0, May 18) by being insulted by the lack of support from the club, to ask if she could continue her mission. Olivier Létang, one or two, did not come in clear and late clearance, the next day the fire pipe to consider that Ben Arfa had gone too far and did not see the future without Stephan. The Rennes coach also wondered how he could influence the mercato, the glittering center of Létang. He has moved the lines but is still reflecting on his future.
Especially as he has not yet been offered an extension (he is under contract until 2020) after bringing back the Coupe de France (along with the eighth final of the Europa League and 6th place in L1 on the time he was discuss it). He said on Wednesday that he should pay tribute to Mexer on Friday, a player on which he relied and that the club did not keep.
