In recent weeks, the leaders of Soyaux-Angoulême have been looking for a new manager to compensate for the departure of Vincent Etcheto. According to our information, the Charente club, maintained in Pro D2 last week after the last day of the regular seasonhas set his sights on Alexandre Ruiz.
Discussions began two months ago. The former international referee has been in charge of rucks, attitudes in contact and discipline at the MHR since the summer of 2021. In addition, he has notably collaborated with the staff of Sète (Fédérale 3), with whom he still works, and Union Cognac Saint-Jean-d’Angély.
The MHR had first closed the door
While the Hérault club had initially closed the door to a possible departure two years before the end of his contract (he had extended until 2025 a year ago), the last few days have changed the situation. Montpellier indeed wishes to reorganize its staff. At 36, Alexandre Ruiz, very motivated at the idea of taking the reins of a coaching, is about to change air. In addition, New Zealander Bruce Reihana, in charge of skills and footwork, could also leave.
