Will Still has ended speculation over his future, signing a deal that ties him to Stade de Reims until 2025. The Anglo-Belgian manager took over on an interim basis when Óscar García was sacked last October, before taking the role permanently on 30th November 2022.
Still then became well-known thanks to a 19-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1, which lifted the Champagne side into the top half of the table. Whilst Reims’ form has tailed off since, the club could still secure a top-half finish should they beat Montpellier in their final game of the season on Saturday.
Still has previously expressed a desire to manage his boyhood club, West Ham United, but that won’t be happening in the immediate future. He has signed with the Champagne side until 2025, and for next season, he will be joined by his brother Nicolas Still, who will form part of Still’s backroom staff. Samba Diawara and Alberto Escobar will also remain as part of the furniture for the 2023/24 season.
