Matthieu Louis-Jean, new Chief Scout
During his official presentation on Thursday afternoon, Gilles Grimandi revealed the name of Le Gym’s new Chief Scout.
The scouting network will be led by Matthieu Louis-Jean. The former Le Havre, Nottingham Forest and Norwich man became a scout in 2007 and has been “1st Team Scout - France” for Manchester United since 2016. “He is somebody that I wanted to attract to the club. He worked for a huge English club, Manchester United. Matthieu has a very good understanding of French football and is very competent internationally. He will take the place that had been left vacant since Serge (Recordier) left. He will take office on Monday.”

“I am a hands on person and I wanted the scouting network to be managed by somebody who is equally hands on, who is aware of the difficulties in recruitment, continued Gilles Grimandi. There won’t be any change amongst the scouts, we don’t want to revolutionise anything.”
