Six new faces. Steve Mandanda, Joe Rodon, Arthur Theate, Christopher Wooh, Arnaud Kalimuendo and Amine Gouiri joined Rennes this summer. The Breton club spent 76 million euros during this transfer window, while 70 million euros entered the coffers, thanks to Nayef Aguerd, Mathys Tel and Gaëtan Laborde. A transfer window ended, which gives a relieved Bruno Génésio. Present at a press conference two days before a trip to Troyes, the 56-year-old coach offered his point of view on the transfer market. It is worth the detour.
“Very glad it’s over. It is bullshit. And then, strangely this morning I found a much happier group, liberated in the heads, us too. It’s nonsense, especially the last days, complete folklore. I don’t know where we’re going but it’s quite picturesque what we can experience. The people in charge of recruiting have a lot of merit and courage to put up with all of this. You don’t know everything and fortunately, but frankly, once again, Olivier (Cloarec) and Flo (Maurice), congratulations to you, they are very resilient and courageous. More than me”, let go Bruno Genesio.
