“JL Bourg Basket announces the suspension of Laurent Legname from his duties as of today. The club does not intend to communicate further at this stage.” It is with these words that JL Bourg announced that it had suspended its coach Laurent Legname.
Arrived last year in Bresse for three seasons, after having achieved prowess in Dijon, the Var coach did not manage to pass a sporting milestone to his new club. Moreover, his temperament did not please on the spot – even with certain players – and it was already certain that he would not stay at the club beyond this season, even if the negotiations had not not yet been started. Finally, JL Bourg anticipated his departure and suspended him, thus preparing for the future, while rumors of the arrival of many coaches (Frédéric Fauthoux, Julien Mahé or even coaches from Eastern Europe ) are becoming more and more insistent. To prepare for the future, the former agent and employee of ASVEL and Zalgiris Kaunas François Lamy has been appointed adviser to the current sports director Frédéric Sarre.
