Kévin Bru, rather No. 8 than No. 10, is from Versailles (N2), which he had joined in January. He played little there… It is no guarantee of success at the CCF, but at the age of 33 he already has a higher conscience and shows a rich business card.

Passed by the INF Clairefontaine, the 1.82m for 73kg right-hander began his professional career at Stade Rennais in 2006. He made two appearances in Ligue 1, but progressed mainly in L2. Under the colors of Châteauroux, Clermont-Ferrand, Dijon, Boulogne and Istres. For a total of 109 matches.

A traveler, born in Paris, then had four adventures abroad: with Levski Sofia, in Bulgarian D1, at Ipswich Town, in English D2, with whom he played four seasons and most notably played against Manchester United in the League Cup , at Apollon Limassol (D1, Cyprus), then at Dinamo Bucharest (D1, Romania).

Returning to France in 2020, he defended the colors of Créteil (National) before joining, with Versailles, participating in National and living the epic in the Coupe de France (semi-final).

Mauritius International

This year he also wore a different jersey, that of Mauritius. Kévin Bru has been selected for the French youth team and has enjoyed international status from Mauritius since 2011.

“His career isn’t over yet, but he’s coming to Chartres for one of his last challenges to reinvigorate himself,” explains Kader Chehida.

Given the number of players announced on departure, he shouldn’t be the only player to join the CCF with the goal of moving up to the National. At least five other elements are expected in the coming days to fill and strengthen the ranks…

Aurélien Gazeau hangs up; Kévin Malaga, Dramane Koné, Maxime Fleury, Amadi Konaté, Sékou Fofana, Ahmed Jabbari have not survived; Erwan Colas, Amine Hémia, Mourad Louzif and Hamjatou Soukouna are called in.

Chantôme remains, Fofana and Gonçalves integrated in the group
There will be another former pro on the C’Chartres Football team next season. Former PSG pro Clément Chantôme, who arrived this winter, will still wear the CCF jersey, as will defending Ibrahima Troaré, who is recovering from a break in the Crusaders, and midfielder Mehdi Haddadou. In addition, the young Banfa Fofana and Esteban Goncalves, who will be called up at the end of the season, will be included in the National 2 group.
