Former Lens player Franck Queudrue told L’Equipe on Sunday that his ex-coach Laszlo Bölöni had “sold a bit” the Ligue 1 match against Nancy, his former club then threatened with relegation, in May 2011 The current Metz coach responded to him on the sidelines of the victory against Nantes.
Who would have imagined that the Nancy-Lens match counting for the 38th day of the championship of the 2010-2011 season would come back into the news? Not many people. This May 29, 2011, against Lens, already condemned to the descent into Ligue 2, ASNL, 17th, is playing for its skin in the elite in its Marcel-Picot stadium. On the Lens bench, Laszlo Bölöni, in post for six months. Not far from him, Franck Queudrue, replacement (he will not come into play).
The ex-defender, retired for ten years, has not forgotten this heavy defeat (4-0): “He said: ‘I will give everything for Lens’ even though he is a pro-Nancy, a coward he, in The team, Sunday about the Romanian technician, coach of ASNL between 1994 and 2000. To Marcel-Picot, during the last day, I think he sold the match a little. He only fielded young players and no attackers. We took 4-0.”
“Who is it ?”
If Nancy actually saved herself by beating Lens that evening, the current Metz coach has few memories of this meeting and especially of Franck Queudrue: “Who is he? What is he doing today, he asks in the columns of The team. Honestly, I don’t remember him. I remember Raphaël Varane, my goalkeeper (Runje), Maoulida or Kondogbia… Him, I don’t remember. He says I sold the match? When we were in Nancy, the championship was over, we were condemned to go down.” A fate which does not concern, to date, neither his Metz team, 11th after its victory against Nantes (3-1), nor Lens, 6th. Nancy, on the other hand, occupies a worrying 17th place in National. Laszlo Bölöni also does not refrain from putting his former defender on trial.
