Persona non grata. In a brief press release posted on social networks, Nathaël Julan's family said that they did not want to see certain people attend the funeral of the young attacker of En Avant Guingamp. The funeral of the young man, who died in a road accident on January 3 in Pordic (Côtes d'Armor), is to be held in Le Havre Thursday.

Shocked by the sudden death of its 23-year-old player, the club requested the postponement of the match against Lens and organized a tribute rally this Thursday on the sidelines of the ceremony. The family saw fit to speak in order to ask part of the club not to travel. Bertrand Desplat, the president, but also the coach Sylvain Didot and his staff or Yannick Gomis, the player's former teammate, are obviously not welcome at the funeral. The family also quotes Laurent Schmitt, the player's former agent, and two local journalists.

The family justifies this choice "taking into account the events which preceded the death of Nathaël". The young man had arrived from Le Havre in January 2018 but was struggling to win in the Guingampais workforce, relegated to Ligue 2 last year.
