Genesio “feels capable” of training the Blues

Genesio “feels capable” of coaching the France team

Asked in Rothen about a possible desire to one day coach the France team, Rennes manager Bruno Genesio first got in touch…before assuming his ambitions. And he kindly sent him the request.

“First there is a coach who is in place… Honestly, I like the France team, they have everything to defend their title and win a World Cup again, with a coach who has a great career,” he answered at the beginning. Above all, you have to trust them and be behind them, that’s what’s important.

And to be more effective: “In the future I feel capable. I feel capable of coaching in a very big club, I feel capable of leading a national team. But today the French team is one of the biggest nations in the world.” We all know that it requires other arguments than just feeling capable of it.”

Genesio explains why Umtiti didn’t sign for Rennes this summer

Rothen’s exceptional guest turns on, this Monday night at RMC, Rennes manager Bruno Genesio explained in particular why Samuel Umtiti, close to the Breton club during the last summer transfer window, ultimately did not sign.

If Genesio wanted to personally sign the former Lyonnais, not everyone within the club agreed, particularly sporting director Florian Maurice.

“Sometimes in football you can have differences, different opinions, different assessments, Bruno Genesio slides. The most important thing is to discuss it honestly and then the decision that is made must be assumed by everyone, including those who did not necessarily agree, and that is my case, there were doubts about his physique, that is a bit if I was convinced that I could take him to his best level because he is a boy that I know very well because I had talked a lot with him and because he is such a hard-working person that he had not reason why I did not find a good level. Now I understand that there have been questions from some people. But as long as we discuss it freely, there is no problem. That’s how we move forward and that we have to work.”
