Everybody out - Stade players on strike
According to the two iconic French clubs, who have between them won 20 domestic titles, the plan is to pool resources next season to 'give birth to a new club'.
Obviously if the merger goes ahead a number of players and staff will lose their jobs. Does the fact that it is the Stade players who are now on “open-ended strike” suggest that is they, rather than their Racing 92 counterparts, who have not received any assurances about their future?
I suggest this is very much going to be a case of “watch this space.”
