L’Équipe report this afternoon that Belgian manager Will Still is set to stay on as Reims manager for the rest of the season, having been promoted from his previous assistant position after the sacking of Óscar García last month.
The Belgian has an impressive unbeaten record in his six games in charge so far, which includes two wins, over Auxerre and Nantes. His team are now up to eleventh in the table.
The Champagne side will nevertheless have to pay a €25,000 fine for every game that Still takes charge in, as he does not have the required UEFA Pro Licence, which he will receive next summer. Until then, the club will have to fork out a total of €575,000 to keep him in his position until the end of the campaign.
Having seen his new position confirmed by the club’s upper manageement, the 30-year-old will have an assistant named by the time the squad returns to training, on November 28.
