Official | Frédéric Antonetti to join Bastia as a Technical Director

In an official press release, SC Bastia have confirmed that they have appointed Frédéric Antonetti as a technical director, effective from the beginning of the 2024/25 season. 

The former Metz manager will return to Bastia in a more senior role – aiding the sporting direction and vision of the football club from next season. Antonetti has a strong affinity with the Ligue 2 club. Starting and finishing his playing career with the Corsican club, Antonetti also managed Bastia for a three-year period during 1999 and 2001.

The confirmation of his appointment as technical director will see him return to his boyhood club for the first time in 21 years. Antonetti has been unemployed following a spell in charge of Strasbourg at the end of the 2023/24 Ligue 1 season. 

Moretti to remain in charge 

In the same statement, Bastia also reaffirmed their confidence in their manager Michel Moretti. Within the press release, they confirmed that the caretaker manager will remain in charge despite the club’s current struggles in Ligue 2. Relegation to the third division is a threat to the Corsican club with Bastia sitting 16th in Ligue 2 at the time of writing.
