the French Stadium formalizes the departure of 13 players, as well as Quesada and Sempéré

The future destination of the first has not filtered while the second will join the XV of France at the end of the World Cup. Morgan Parra is retiring.

Stade Français, which ended its 2022-2023 season after losing in the play-off on Saturday against Racing 92 (20-33), formalized the departure of 13 of its players, as well as that of two of its coaches, Gonzalo Quesada and Laurent Sempere.

The departures of the Argentinian, main coach of the Pink Soldiers between 2013 and 2017 then since 2020, and Sempéré, in charge of forwards within the Parisian club for four seasons after having played there as a hooker between 2008 and 2019, were recorded for many months. But they were made official by the club on social networks on Monday evening. If we do not yet know the destination of Quesada, with whom the French Stadium won the Shield of Brennus in 2015, we know that Sempéré will join the staff of the XV of France after the World Cup-2023.

Karim Ghezal goes the opposite way

Sempéré will take over in this role from Karim Ghezal, who will join the Stade Français at the end of the World Cup, in the company of the current coach of the attack of the Blues, Laurent Labit. In addition to these two names, the Parisian club has formalized the retirement of scrum half Morgan Parra (34 years old, 71 caps), who should precisely join the management of the French stadium for next season.

Scrum-half Arthur Coville as well as centers Alex Arrate and Théo Dachary are also leaving the club, as are South Africans Vincent Koch, James Hall and Nemo Roelofse, England’s Harry Glover and Paolo Odogwu, Tongan Telusa Veainu, l Argentinian Marcos Kremer and Australians Sione Tui and Sitaleki Timani.
