Extension of Jean-Pierre Papin to officially C’Chartres Football

This time it’s official. Jean-Pierre Papin, who arrived on the banks of the Eure in 2020, will have a third season at C’Chartres Football, as we imagined. The extension of the coach of the National 2 team of the CCF was recorded by the club through its social networks this Monday, June 13.

President Gérard Soler, immediately contacted, confirmed this by telephone. “He gives us so much. We are very happy that he chose to continue the adventure with us. †

It was not taken over a month ago. After announcing at the beginning of May that he would remain in Chartres, Jean-Pierre Papin had expressed his uncertainty to his entourage and his leaders. Talks with OM, his favorite club with which the former international was crowned French champion four times, made him doubt for a long time.

There were phone calls, he listened. It would have been crazy not to be. Of course he kept me informed. After that, he never came to tell me that he was going to leave and look for a new coach.

“Jean-Pierre is back on the track. There were phone calls, he listened. It would have been crazy not to be, Gérard Soler slips. Of course he kept me informed. After that, he never came to tell me that he was going to leave and look for a new coach. I had foreseen. I had to be president. We had even made progress with the name of his eventual successor…”

There was no need to name a replacement for JPP. The 1991 Ballon d’Or finally decided, thus favoring Chartres. “In some ways he could have found much better stuff elsewhere. But he weighed the pros and cons… He feels good here and he likes our project very much. He is determined to carry it out and we are going to give him put in the best conditions to do that! »
The head coach, who has been asked to take charge of a specific niche for the club’s young forwards, will work with a staff identical to those in this second part of the 2021-2022 season. A half of the championship in which the CCF put pressure on leader Versailles, before bursting as the final sprint approached.

With the same staff

Thierry Bocquet, who arrived during the winter break, will therefore retain the role of assistant while Robin Moreau and Adrien Gato will still hold the positions of physical trainer and goalkeeper coach. “We will be more demanding in certain areas, but the structure will be identical,” says Gérard Soler.

The staff will not change. But it is with an a priori highly revamped workforce that Chartres will once again hit the road to overcome National’s rise. Hoping to achieve its goal this time, after two failures and two attempts cut short by the covid since the birth of the CCF in 2018.

“The objective, with better results for our young teams, remains entry, confirms Gérard Soler. We have to move up, especially so that the players trained with us can stay longer. The merger has been completed. We must take this step now! †
