The last hours at FC Lorient were particularly eventful. Yesterday evening, our colleagues from Ouest-France revealed that Olivier Pantaloni would soon take the reins of Merlus, replacing Régis Le Bris. The latter, appointed head of the professional team in June 2022, had a promising first season before experiencing a dizzying fall this season, leading to the relegation of Lorient to Ligue 2.

Régis Le Bris courted by Sunderland

Despite this difficult season, Régis Le Bris remains a coveted coach. While waiting to reach an agreement with President Loïc Féry to terminate his contract, the technician from Pont-l’Abbé could bounce back in England. According to the BBC, Sunderland, managed by Kyril Louis-Dreyfus, are interested in his services. The English club is looking for a successor to Michael Beale, sacked 100 days ago after failing to qualify the team for the Championship playoffs (English D2) and finishing in a pitiful 16th place. Talks between Sunderland and Regis Le Bris are expected to continue this weekend, with the Black Cats hoping to complete a deal within the next three or four days.


Unconditional fan of the Coupe de France and Football Manager. Having worked with WebGirondins, Daily Sports, BeIN Sports and Quinze Mondial, I am embarking on this new adventure with the idea of ​​staying as long on this site as Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
