Will Vladimir Petkovic spend the winter in Bordeaux? After the stinging 6-0 defeat conceded on Sunday in Rennes, the position of the former coach of the Swiss team becomes untenable.
This setback in Brittany comes after the “historic” defeat at home to Marseille, the first in 44 years which has hurt Girondin supporters so much. It also comes three days after the club’s decision to part ways with four players, including captain Laurent Koscielny. Above all, it reflects the edifying shortcomings of a team which has the worst defense in Ligue 1 with… 50 goals conceded in 21 matches.
Calvary in Brittany
Even if the amount – more than 2.5 million francs per year – and the duration – as of June 30, 2024 – of his contract protect him because of the financial situation of the club considered to be very precarious, Petkovic can feed many concerns.
In Rennes, Bordeaux did not send their first shot on target until the … 83rd minute. The Girondins held on for half an hour before completely letting go. Led 2-0 at the break, they had the misfortune to find themselves at ten in the 50th minute after the expulsion for two warnings from halfback Issouf Sissokho.
