Marked by the assault of the director of its training center by a player’s father, Stade Rennais has decided to cancel the training of its young players in the coming days and to file a complaint. But the player in question, Noah Françoise, will not be sanctioned.

Sometimes, in fact, he participates in sessions with Bruno Genesio, but sporadically, depending on the needs.
“Noah Françoise has absolutely nothing to do with this affair. There is no reason for him to suffer the consequences, we explain to the Stade Rennais. He is a young professional still in progress, who still has two years on his contract. he reassured about this “. At the club, the coaches confirm that Françoise has a very good mentality and is a respectful and attentive guy.
