INFO RMC SPORT. Xavier Garbajosa, free since his ouster from Montpellier, is in discussions to integrate the staff of Gonzalo Quesada at the Stade Français.
The Stade Français is agitated behind the scenes. The Parisian club, beaten by Clermont (27-34) last Saturday in Jean-Bouin, saw the final stages move away. Paul Alo-Émile and his partners are now in 9th place in the Top 14 standings, seven lengths from the last qualifying place occupied by Lyon. It is obviously a disappointment for the Stade Français which, in view of its workforce, was aiming for a more successful season. If nothing is completely lost yet, it will now be necessary to achieve an excellent end of the course over the last six days to get by.
Gonzalo Quesada, who returned to Paris last summer from the Argentine Jaguares team, has not yet succeeded in really giving new impetus to his team. The manager, supported by Julien Arias and Laurent Sempéré, could see his staff reshaped and strengthened by the arrival of an external skill.
Garbajosa would be interested
According to information from RMC Sport, the hottest track leads to Xavier Garbajosa, as several sources have confirmed to us. Discussions exist. Thanked by the managers of Montpellier on January 3 and replaced by Philippe Sant-André, the profile of the 44-year-old technician does indeed interest the Stade Français. The former international with 44 caps would also be tempted by this new bet next season.
