Present at a press conference this Friday, Igor Tudor was asked about his next opponent, Stade de Reims. And for the OM coach, there is no comparison, the team relaunched by Will Still is the best in France at the moment.
On October 13, after a more than sluggish start to the season, the Reims Stadium decides to separate fromOscar Garcia. His deputy WillStill then takes over and while he is initially supposed to simply act as interim, the Belgian will quickly convince his management to talk to him, even if it means paying the €25,000 fine for each match because he has not his coaching credentials. But it is clear that it is the right choice since Reims is undefeated for 17 matches in League 1 (9 wins and 8 draws) and point in eighth place, just four points behind Rennes, fifth.
