The new Bordeaux coach is one of the oldest coaches in the history of the championship.
He had to take his pain patiently but Jean-Louis Gasset became, a fortnight ago, the new coach of Bordeaux.
For his first match at the head of the Girondins, the former assistant to Laurent Blanc at the Blues had to be content with a draw against Nantes (0-0) but now emerges among the oldest coaches to have officiated in the French championship.
At 66 years and 8 months, the Bordeaux technician has only been preceded, since 1970, by Raymond Goethals (71 years and 8 months), Guy Roux (68 years and 10 months), Tomislav Ivic (68 years and 5 months), Vahid Halilodzic (67 years and 9 days) and Stefan Kovacs (66 years and 8 months).

The young Belgian crack (20 years old) remains on a 23-goal season with La Gantoise. What to break everything in Ligue 1 with Losc?
A small nugget of the OL training center, the international hope was recruited for € 7 million by Nice. He makes an interesting lining to Kasper Dolberg but has played a lot in the preparation as a left winger.
While Habib Diallo is expected in England, his young Senegalese compatriot (21) has the opportunity to explode (finally) this season at the forefront of FC Metz’s attack. “Ibra” is able to turn a meeting on his own!
The English striker (21) from the Girondins struck 6 times last year but in a role of understudy for veteran Jimmy Briand. It’s the year or never to become a Ligue 1 star.
El Bilal Toure
The 18-year-old Malian striker signed at Stade de Reims on January 3. After a resounding debut (3 goals in 7 matches), he starts this season as a regular center-forward for the Champagne club.
Recruited for 15 million euros by Monaco a year ago, the Nigerian winger was disappointed before being loaned to Galatasaray. Niko Kovac relies a lot on this very hard-hitting player.
The former Le Havre scorer should be put in competition with Karl-Toko Ekambi after the probable departure of Moussa Dembélé. He has everything to become OL’s new scorer.
Untenable with Clermont, the 24-year-old Austrian center-forward will discover Ligue 1 with FC Lorient, who bet € 9 million on him.
The 23-year-old winger has fire in his legs and will have to make many differences for FC Lorient.
At 29 years old, this player who passed through Montpellier really discovered Ligue 1. This opportunistic number 9 capsized Bollaert last season.
After a promising season in Orleans, the 22-year-old, who is 1.92m tall, has plenty of time to win in Dijon this season.
The 23-year-old striker does not come from Ligue 2 but from… National 2! Claude Puel is obviously going to give “JPK” and Charles Abi a chance, already used last winter.
