Abdel Bouhazama is no longer the coach of Angers. The scarlet red lantern coach of L 1 (10 points in 26 games) resigned on Tuesday. Officially, the person concerned had been thinking about it for several days. But his decision was precipitated by a conversation which caused widespread discussion. Last Saturday, to prepare for the rout suffered in Montpellier (5-0), Abdel Bouhazama made mind-blowing remarks to his players during his pre-match speech. To “play down” the presence in the starting XI of left-back Ilyes Chetti, who is being prosecuted for sexual assault, the coach found nothing more appropriate than to declare: “It’s not mean, we’ve all already touched girls”.
