Everybody out – Stade players on strike

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 6:26
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The players of Stade Francais are apparently on strike over the club’s plans to merge with Racing 92 to form a Parisian super-club next season.

According to the two iconic French clubs, who have between them won 20 domestic titles, the plan is to pool resources next season to ‘give birth to a new club’.

Obviously if the merger goes ahead a number of players and staff will lose their jobs. Does the fact that it is the Stade players who are now on “open-ended strike” suggest that is they, rather than their Racing 92 counterparts, who have not received any assurances about their future?

I suggest this is very much going to be a case of “watch this space.”
