From the middle of the champion, FC Lorient, which is finishing its 10th season, is sent back to the relegation zone, with four points from the first non-relegation. The atmosphere in the dress is explosive, with a clash between Benjamin Mendy and Régis Le Bris.
During the match against Stade Brestois, the FC Lorient players suffered a heavy defeat (4-0), the fifth defeat in six matches after those against Strasbourg and Olympique de Marseille. After 17 days, the Bretons no longer have any points and the threat of relegation becomes more and more pressing each week.
After this debacle at Francis Le Blé, Régis Le Bris seemed dejected in front of the media. “I don’t know how to feel the derby spirit right now. I am extremely disappointed with what I saw. We tried to remobilize the troops at half-time, telling ourselves that we had to at least avoid a total disaster,” he declared.
The tensions between Le Bris and the two children
According to information obtained by L’Equipe, disappointment gave way to tension in the locker room after the match. The Lorient coach also spoke of a lack of humility among certain players. Vincent Le Goff would then have asked the coach to name these players and Régis Le Bris would not have hesitated to point the finger at Benjamin Mendy, Isaak Touré, Jean-Victor Makengo and Romain Faivre.

If Touré and Faivre did not react according to the media, this is not the case for the other two, in particular Benjamin Mendy, very angry, who would have announced that this problem would be resolved upon resumption. The situation tends to be more and more among the players of FC Lorient and the position of Régis Le Bris becomes more and more fragile. In the event of a bad result after the break, the French coach could be fired.
