Bordeau, France (AP) – Bordeaus coach Paul Valle says the Stade Français will host the 2019 European Champions Leagues, adding that the club is hopeful to add another French-speaking player to its squad in the next year or two.
The French soccer federation approved Bordeos move to the next round of the Champions League on Tuesday after it hosted its third-ever game at the French capital’s Stade Jean-Talon.
The Stade has hosted games against Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
Valle, who was the team’s director of football for a few years, said it was an ideal scenario to host the league again.
“It’s a dream for us to be part of the next generation of European champions,” Valle said, adding the club plans to sign a few players in the near future.
“We are hopeful to have a player in place for the 2019-2020 season.”
The Stadio Olympique d’Or has hosted the European Championships every year since 1958, and its two final matches have been won by Bordea.
The Bordeais were also among those that finished second to France in the 2018 World Cup.
Bordeaus head coach Paul Laval is also hoping to add a few more players to his squad next season.
“The club has made great strides in its recruitment process, and we are delighted to have the Bordeans on board,” Laval said.
“We are confident that the Bordes will be the team to build a successful and sustainable future for our club.”
Our new players will have a great opportunity to show their quality and bring their proven record to Bordeavilles first team.”©2018 Cox Media Group.
