Nicely-known coach of the fields of Competitors 1 (with Metz, Montpellier or Bastia particularly), but in addition in Ligue 2, the native of Rodez Frederic Hantz performed within the Aveyronnais membership from 1980 to 1987, then ended his profession in the identical metropolis earlier than taking up the staff as coach. This Saturday, August 6 Frederic Hantz might be current on the Stade Paul-Lignon to rejoice the assembly between the RAF and the Girondins, two golf equipment that know very nicely Frederic Hantz : “I used to be born in Rodez, I performed and educated in Rodez and at present I’m in Rodez. I do know the Girondins de Bordeaux very nicely as a result of my father has lived in Bordeaux for 50 years and the primary skilled match I noticed was Bordeaux towards Nantes and Marseille within the Coupe de France, when it was nonetheless on impartial floor. (laughs) and the final time I performed was in Ligue 2 with Istres and it was towards Bordeaux“.

A Ligue 2 Championship developed in response to Fréderic Hantz

Since 1991, Bordeaux hadn’t descended to the decrease echelon of Ligue 1. Thirty years later, the lads of David Guion will uncover a championship that has developed nicely and Bordeaux is predicted in all Ligue 2 stadiums: “The large golf equipment by no means die, Bordeaux returns to Ligue 1. Is Bordeaux the staff to beat? The phrases are sturdy, however will probably be a staff anticipated in every single place. They’re coming to Rodez on Saturday and for a membership like Rodez to host Bordeaux it’s an distinctive occasion within the lifetime of the membership, and this would be the case in every single place.“.

The previous coach of Rodez gave his opinion on the Competitors 2 this season : “We will not say that Ligue 2 is a Ligue 1 bis this season, even when it is tight, however by way of expertise to implement, there are enormous variations between Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. The distinction is big, particularly when in comparison with the standard of the gamers. In Ligue 1, it is the gamers that make you win matches, in Ligue 2, you probably have a great dynamic with a great coach, with a receptive group, in a great membership, in a great atmosphere, it could possibly match“.

The id of a membership, the precedence for a coach?

Bordeaux is trying to rediscover its id that has been its attraction for many years. For the previous coach of Rodez, Frederick Hantz, it’s a precedence that the gamers respect the id of the membership and its historical past: “once I was in Bastia, I pressured the gamers to study Corsican. In Montpellier we climbed the Pic Saint-Loup. The Pic Saint-Loup is kind of well-known and I had gamers educated in Montpellier they usually did not know this place. In Bordeaux, for instance, the very first thing that involves thoughts is to take a stroll by means of the vineyards, to fulfill people who find themselves a part of the historical past of this area. It is elementary, however each coach does it together with his convictions […] Every thing is essential immediately, it’s important to convey again love, respect between folks, esteem and respect for the historical past of a membership, I believe it’s extra elementary than earlier than and it’s much more fruitful, I’m satisfied“.

Rodez, a membership that’s dedicated

He stayed with the Rodez membership for over 12 years. Frederic Hantz explains the id and taking part in fashion of the membership “Sang et Or”. “For starters, you could find Rodez and as we are saying in our nation, Rodez is positioned on a “Piton”, a small mountain. Talking of soccer, Rodez is an athletic staff, Laurent Peyrelade pursues a mannequin of success for the membership that Michel Poisson based some thirty years in the past, which is according to the values ​​of the membership and the area, which is- ie sturdy folks, bodily stable gamers with nice bodily and psychological dedication and in a small stadium beneath building, Bordeaux might be in a sober or troublesome place that he’ll uncover […] For Bordeaux it’s a catastrophe to be in Ligue 2, however for Rodez it’s a everlasting achievement. {That a} metropolis of 20,000 folks like Rodez has been in Ligue 2 for 3 years, which has no historical past of soccer on the highest stage, is one thing distinctive and Laurent Peyrelade is likely one of the architects of this work.“.

Frédéric Hantz thinks will probably be extra of a check for Bordeaux than for Rodez

Whereas Bordeaux strikes to Aveyron face it Rodez in an area that may accommodate just one,700 folks, circumstances”French Cup“, Frederic Hantz suppose this assembly is extra essential for the Girondins just for Rodez : “Internet hosting the Girondins de Bordeaux is an distinctive second for Rodez. I believe and have the impression that Bordeaux continues to be nervous concerning the begin of the season, concerning the constructions of the staff to discover a good dynamic. From Bordeaux’s standpoint, the lead to Rodez might be essential as a result of it may be the founding father of a brand new impulse, however it could possibly additionally reveal important shortcomings. I believe it is higher for Rodez to play towards Bordeaux at the moment of yr, Bordeaux because the video games go on, we all know how essential it’s for Bordeaux to come back again shortly, they performed a draw at house and I believe this assembly turns into essential for the Girondins. essential, greater than for Rodez”.
