Speaking in quotes picked up by L’Équipe, Ligue 1 side Rennes President Olivier Létang yesterday denied that he had made contact with ex-Aston Villa, Impact Montréal and Lyon manager Rémi Garde about replacing current boss Julien Stéphan.
“I have always supported Julien. I chose him a year ago, and I refused his departure to Monaco, and my sole desire is for us to unite together. Nobody, I repeat nobody, has been contacted! Neither before, neither after the match against Celtic!”
