“Major arrival for FCL that we should announce by Monday. Essential recruit for the club and who should delight our supporters. » This tweet is signed by President Loïc Féry and concerns Régis Le Bris. Only, it dates from July 8, 2012 and, at the time, the Finisterian landed from Stade Rennais to take charge of the Lorient training center.
Crossover with Julien Stéphan in 2012
That of player, as a defender, was more modest. Started in Rennes (1994-1999), continued in Laval, it ended in Belgian D2 (KSK Ronse, 2002-2003). The eldest of the Le Bris (Benoît was also a player) therefore quickly looked into the transmission. If he started in Wasquehal, at the age of 27, it was on the banks of the Vilaine that he revealed himself, technically and intellectually (doctorate in physiology and biomechanics, DU in mental preparation for high-level athletes).
In the field, he was champion of France with the under 18s (2007) and won the Coupe Gambardella (2008). But, then with the under 19s, he declined, in 2012, an extension in a club with which he no longer shared “all future training directions”, and was thus promoted to neighboring Morbihan, replacing Hervé Guégan. For the occasion, he leaves his place in Rennes to a certain Julien Stéphan, who takes the opposite route.
In Lorient, close to the ideas of Christian Gourcuff, the historic coach of Les Merlus who pleaded for his arrival, Le Bris will make the new training center grow, win the French Under-17 Championship (2015), before take care of the reserve (N2). He will also participate in the emergence of players like Mattéo Guendouzi, Alexis Claude-Maurice, Illan Meslier, Enzo Le Fée…
At first, Régis Le Bris will have to build a staff. Erwann Le Postec, physical trainer at the center, and especially Aziz Mady Mogne, post-training recruiter, could take the lead.
