Stade Brestois: Éric Roy votes for “Bizot and Lees-Melou” at the UNFP trophies

Rewarded for their historic season, Marco Bizot (best goalkeeper), Pierre Lees-Melou (best player) and Éric Roy (best coach) were nominated for the UNFP (National Union of Professional Footballers) trophies, the results of which will be announced on Monday May 13 .

A fair reward according to Éric Roy, questioned on the subject at a press conference on Thursday. “We live this with a lot of serenity. It’s good to have rewarded players, he comments. There are some who are not from us and who could have deserved to be there. It’s like that “.

For the best player category, Roy has no doubts. It will be for Kylian Mbappé: “We know very well, he will be the best scorer in the championship, I think”. For this prize, and that of best goalkeeper, the Brest coach nevertheless has a certain fondness for his protégés. “I would say Marco Bizot as the best goalkeeper and Pierre Lees-Melou as the best player. I’m very corporate as a guy,” he laughs.

It’s always a Source of pride

But the one with the best chance of obtaining a trophy is indeed him. And on his own nomination, Éric Roy is simply grateful. “What is interesting, whether you are a player or a coach, is that you are elected by your peers. It’s always a Source of pride, assures the native of Nice, especially in relation to my career. If I am here today, it is also because the players had results on the pitch. It’s something that rewards a club as a whole, and that’s good.”

The trophies will be awarded on Monday May 13. So far, no clue about the nature of his votes. Just: “I didn’t vote for myself, we don’t have the right.”
