Currently stationed at Servette Geneva, Gérard Bonneau, former emblematic recruiter of Olympique Lyonnais, should become responsible for the recruitment of Dijon, the red lantern of Ligue 1.
Very nice shot for Dijon. If the Burgundy team is heading straight for Ligue 2, it is preparing the future with a reinforcement of weight within its organization chart. Looking for a recruiting manager, the DFCO met Gérard Bonneau in recent days to offer him the position. According to our information, the current director of the recruitment unit of Servette Genève FC should accept and become the new recruiting manager for the Dijon club.
The man who discovered Benzema and Lacazette
If you do not know Gérard Bonneau, he is one of the most famous talent scouts in France. And for good reason, he was for 25 years the flagship recruiter of Olympique Lyonnais. The arrivals at the training center of future Gones cracks such as Karim Benzema, Hatem Ben Arfa or even Alexandre Lacazette bear his signature.
Gérard Bonneau left Jean-Michel Aulas’ club in 2018 to take up a new challenge in Switzerland, at Servette Geneva. His return to France will bring happiness to Dijon, no doubt a resident of Ligue 2 next season, and eager to quickly find the elite. The DFCO, the red lantern of Ligue 1, moves on the lawn of the Stade Vélodrome to face OM, Sunday evening at the end of the 31st day of Ligue 1.
