The young Stade Reims by Òscar García Junyent, with the next two games remaining, he has managed to save himself from relegation and in France they praise the work of the Spanish coach, who has had a great campaign with his team in Ligue 1
EITHERscar managed to save his team from relegation with three games to go for the season finale. Stade Reims has 43 points from 36 games, occupies twelfth position in Ligue 1 and has already surpassed the 42 points reached last season. In addition to reaching the knockout stages of the Coupe de France, a stage of the competition that they did not reach 10 years ago.
In France it stands out that this season the Stade Reims is being the ‘giant killer’ of the strong teams in the competition. This season they have beaten Olympique de Lyon (in the first leg), Monaco, Rennes and Lille. And tied with Olympique de Lyon (in the second leg), Olympique de Marseille, Nice and Strasbourg (the latter, both in the first leg and in the second leg)
The team led by the Catalann has the youngest squad in the entire French League (23.8 years old), behind are Rennes (24.0 years old), Nice (24.1 years old) and Olympique de Marseille (24.2 years old). It is not only the youngest squad in the French League, but also the third youngest in the five major leagues (only Italy’s Spezia and Germany’s Stuttgart are ahead). The Spanish coach made his debuts Koeberle (17), Bradley Locko (19), Ilan Kebbal (23), Martin Adeline (18), Diakité (18), Doumbia (19), Mbow (21) and N’Dri Philippe Koffi ( 19) of the Stade Reims subsidiary.
On matchday 25 of Ligue 1, the Stade Reims fielded the youngest XI of the five major leagues this season, with a mean age of 22.5 years. The Catalan has made 20 players aged 23 or younger play minutes this season, of which 10 of them are 20 or younger. In fact, he has made Hugo Ekitike (19), a player from the academy, who last year was on loan in Denmark, at Vejle, one of the most fashionable players this season (10 goals and 2 assists). They link him to Newcastle, Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid or Liverpool.
Óscar makes his way in France.
