    but I still need to find a challenge in the game." - Zinedine Zidane.

    Zidane Takes Over at Stade Rennais

    Stade Rennais' chairman Frederic de Saint-Sernin has today announced that Zinedine Zidane will be taking over the helm of the club. Previous manager Frederic Antonetti was sacked by the club after an awful start to the season, leaving them in 19th in Ligue 1, with just 5 points. Zidane will have his work cut out to save the club from relegation. Frederic de Saint-Sernin will surely be hoping his amazing playing skills will be transferred into his management skills. Stade Rennais will have their chance to get their first win of the season in Zidane's debut game against fellow struggles Nancy Lorraine, who are sitting in 18th place.

    Mixed Start for Zidane and Co.

    It has been a mixed start for Zidane at Stade Rennais with 2 wins and 2 losses. His debut game against AS Nancy Lorraine started off very well, and they won the game 3-0. They then had a tough start against big spenders Paris Saint-Germain. They put up a good effort but were unable to match PSGs high profile players and lost 3-0. They then recorded their second win with a 2-0 scoreline over Evian TG. In their final game of the month, they struggled against ESTAC Troyes, and lost 3-1.

    Solid Month Hauls Stade Rennais Out of Relegation Zone

    An unbeaten month for Stade Rennais has seen them climb out of the relegation zone and into 17th place. Zidane has already got his team playing very nice pass and move football, and the results are now starting to show. They got the month going with a 3-0 win over Stade Brestois, then added to it with a 2-1 win against OGC Nice. They were then unlucky in two draws against Valenciennes and AC Ajaccio, as they were by far and away the better side in both game. The month will have encouraged the fans, and they will be hoping the team can push on from here.

    With the transfer window also open this month, they will be looking forward to seeing if Zidane will add any players to the team. It is thought that players will need to leave before Zidane can bring any in though due to tight finances.

    Stade Rennais 3 - 0Stade Brestois
    Pajot (30), Montano (85,90)

    OGC Nice 1 - 2 Stade Rennais
    Pejcinovic (61)
    Theophile-Cathrine (58), Feret (90)

    Stade Rennais 1 - 1
    Makoun (23)
    Pojul (73)

    Stade Rennais Still Hovering Just Above Relegation Zone

    Its been another mixed month for Stade Rennais, with 3 wins and 2 losses. The fans will be encouraged with two good wins in the French cup, with a 2-1 victory over OM in the 9th round and a 2-1 win over Lille in the 10th round. They had no luck in the league though, and lost 2-0 against Bordeaux, and 2-1 to OM. The losses leave them just above the relegation zone, 2 points clear.

    There was also some transfer movement in and out of the club, with Victor Montano moving to Panathinaikos for £2 million. On deadline day, Zidane brought in Lucas from Real Madrid "C" and Brazil legend Rivaldo. Zidane is said to be very happy with his new signings and looks forward to seeing them play.

    Zidane Sacked Despite Saving Rennais!

    Zidane has today been sacked by Stade Rennais despite steering them away from relegation, and finishing in 16th position. Zidane is thought to be very disappointed with the decision, as he felt there was good things to come next season. The fans were also shocked with the decision, as they felt Zidane had started to implement a really good style of play within the team, and were excited next season.

    Interest in Zidane is thought to be high, with Inter, Southampton and Everton just some clubs looking for a new manager. It is already thought that Southampton have offered the ex-France international a contract, but it has you to be confirmed.

    Which club will Zidane join next? Will he end up in England, Italy or perhaps Spain?
    Follow along to find out.

    I have also decided to change the layout of the story from the next post
