INFO RMC Sport – A group of potential buyers for the Girondins de Bordeaux have placed Michel Der Zakarian high on their list in case of success in his takeover of the club.
While Jean-Louis Gasset has for several weeks left uncertainty around his future, although he still has a year of contract left, Bordeaux leaders were working behind the scenes on the arrival of a new coach before the announcements related to the future of the club. Michel Der Zakarian, who said he would not continue the adventure with Montpellier beyond this season, was the priority of the Girondins.
The announcement of the departure from King Street, on April 22, obviously changed things, but the future of Michel Der Zakarian could still be linked to Bordeaux. A group of potential buyers have already placed the 58-year-old technician high on his list if he is successful in his takeover of the club.
Der Zakarian “hopes to bounce back elsewhere”
Passed on the benches of FC Nantes (2007-2008, 2012-2016), Clermont (2009-2012) or even Reims (2016-2017) before arriving at the MHSC, Michel Der Zakarian formalized his departure from the Hérault club at the start of the month. “It’s an adventure that stops but I hope to bounce back elsewhere, he confided. I have no regrets, on the contrary, I had a good time with everyone and we worked well. It’s the life of a coach. “
His team occupies eighth place in Ligue 1 three days from the end of the season, while Bordeaux, 15th, is not yet definitively saved.
