Contrary to what has been said and hoped, there will ultimately be a major change in the carolo staff, other than that of the head coach. According to our information, the physical trainer Philippe Simonin will not extend his mission at Sporting. The two parties did not find an agreement. The French should be replaced by Frédéric Renotte, who had already held this position in Charleroi between 2013 and 2016, then in Antwerp, among others.
In addition, Jacques Borlée could join the broader management of the team, as an external consultant. This specialist profile would enrich the new “performance unit” set up by Edward Still and dear to management.
