Florent Balmont will retire at the end of the season, whether its annulled or not

Speaking to Canal Football Club, 40-year-old French central midfielder Florent Balmont confirmed that the 2019/20 campaign will be his last, regardless of whether or not the season is annulled owing to the ongoing COVID-19 disruption.

“It is decided, even if I have to end my career like this I will. I would obviously like to do two final months to maximise the enjoyment possible out of this final season.”

Après avoir annoncé qu’il prendrait sa retraite au terme de la saison, le milieu dijonnais a confirmé qu’il arrêterait bien, même si l’exercice 2019-2020 n’allait pas à son terme à cause du coronavirus.

The Dijon midfielder has remained an important dressing room figure for DFCO this season and will be key if the season gets back up and running in the side’s battle against relegation.
