• Since the start of the season, the seniors of the Rehainviller-Hériménil Sports Association, in Meurthe-et-Moselle, have been chaining the pants.

    Last example Sunday with a 40-0 spanking in Champigneulles.

  • But how could they have come to this?

    “It had been two years since the team should have gone down to D2 but had been saved.

    I had come to create something except that I did not expect that, ”explains their coach to

    20 Minutes

    .

  • Last Sunday, they were only 8 on the ground.

    Including “an injured person who plays on one leg and suffers from the cruciate ligaments”.

Notice to punters: at the next match of the Rehainviller-Hériménil Sports Association, put the package on their opponents!

“It will be at least a 5-0 defeat”, already foresees the coach of this team which plays in Division 1 of the district of Meurthe-et-Moselle.

Christophe Barré prefers to have fun with it.

Since the start of the season, his group "takes pills every Sunday".

Last to date this May 15 with a 40-0 spanking in Champigneulles.

Yes, 40-0.

“It must be a record, I don't know if it had already happened”, smiles the technician again, who had however already experienced a few disappointments since his arrival last summer.

“It had been two years since the team should have gone down to D2 but had been saved.

I had come to create something except that I did not expect that.

From the first day of the championship, his flock suffered an 11-0 at home against Lunéville.

A 7-0, 11-1, 14-0, 11-0, 8-0, 21-0 or two 9-0s have since followed.

“We are at 186 goals conceded (for 8 scored) in 20 days.

We are a bit of a laughingstock, ”continues the technician, always preferring to smile.

Because his players have extenuating circumstances.

Finally, those who still come to play the matches.

Has eight on the ground with an injured

Last Sunday, they were thus only eight on the ground.

Including “an injured person who plays on one leg and suffers from the cruciate ligaments”.

But, without him, the club would have had to forfeit.

And therefore pay the fines that go with it.

“Despite all that, they went to the end of the meeting and it is to their credit.

Our adversary greeted him by making them a guard of honor”, ​​explains the fifty-year-old, also “proud of [his] eight fighters”.

Not necessarily other licensees who no longer come to the match…

However, at the start of the season, the squad was sufficient.

But by dint of taking jail every weekend, many have become discouraged.

"They prefer to stay at home."

Result, the reserve team of D3 was stopped at the truce and many elements that composed it were promoted.

“But some were starting football.

I had to teach them how to make touches and the offside rule for example, ”recounts Christophe Barré, without blame.

“It's only football, I stayed for the old ones.

The ordeal is soon over.

Two more days and Rehainviller-Hériménil will be relegated.

To leave with which team and in which division?

The coach, who comes from Pont-à-Mousson every week, will no longer be there.

“The president is still happy with me and is going to write me a letter of recommendation.

“He can also recall that the agreement won a match this year: 2-1 at Fléville in mid-September.
