Ligue 1: Lens changes to “AnglHaise” time

DESCRIPTION – Inspired by the operation across the Channel, Sang et Or promoted Franck Haise, their trainer for two and a half years, to the position of “general manager”.

Racing Club de Lens was inspired by England. Following the (surprising) departure of Florent Ghisolfi, the architect of the Lensois sports project, at OGC Nice, Sang et Or carried out a major reorganization on Thursday: the former head of the recruitment unit, Grégory Thill, took over the management reins technique. but above all, Franck Haise, until then a coach, was promoted to “general manager”, a general position throughout the Channel. This (also) quick and bold reaction is obviously intended to ensure.”technical and sports training”, exactly as requested by the club’s players, according to the revelations published by The team this Friday.

Now placed at the center of the Lensois project

It is also an opportunity for craft training to start a new dynamic. Better, enter a new era to continue its development. “This new sports governance course has been operated in a structured manner, with the sincere support of all, and meets the objective of allowing the club to consolidate its performance and strengthen its ambition for the coming seasons.“Explained Arnaud Pouille, the general manager of Lens. And with this “English-style” restructuring, Franck Haise is now at the center of the Sang et Or project. The 51-year-old coach, who has also extended his contract until June 2027, must “be a part of the broadcast and the long-term vision without this interfering with your missions as head trainer“, according to the terms used by the artesian direction.

A difficult new role but one that is not completely foreign to him, in the sense that his prerogatives were not strictly limited to the field until then. “For a time, he had gone beyond the simple act of training, a job that already has many responsibilities. We had many discussions with Florent Ghisolfi, about hiring, staffinghe told reporters. There was already a form of transversality in my work.”

Stripes in a (very) short time

If the appointment of the former subsidiary coach to the post of general manager is surprising, because it generates a total reorganization of the club, it seems natural that the Lensois leaders decide to trust more in his skills. Because in two and a half years, the former Stade Lavallois player has shown them to a great extent. Arrived at the Racing Club de Lens bench at the end of February 2020, replacing Philippe Montanier, he contributed to the promotion in Ligue 1 by obtaining two successes, just before the end of the Ligue 2 championship dictated by the Covid-pandemic. 19

Above all, for Sang et Or’s return to the French elite, he caused a sensation by snatching an astonishing seventh place from them, at the gates of Europe, while displaying a game made of intensity and spectacle. Same thing last season, with another 7th place in the standings and fun games to watch. Since the start of the new financial year, it seems that his team -undefeated until the defeat against LOSC last Sunday (1-0)- has passed a milestone, despite the departure of Jonathan Clauss, who went to Olympique de Marseille at half-time . -season. Currently, it is in a remarkable fourth place. And he could well be on the podium temporarily if he wins, at home, this Saturday night (9pm) against Montpellier HSC. Finishing in the top three is without a doubt Sang et Or’s long-term ambition. With Franck Haise at the helm, it is a goal that seems clearly achievable.
