Omar Daf appointed new coach of Dijon

It’s the end of a soap opera. Left to arm wrestle with the management of his former club, FC Sochaux, who refused to see him leave, Omar Daf will be the new coach of Dijon next season, the Burgundy club announced on Friday in a press release. The 45-year-old Senegalese succeeds Patrice Garande, who left at the end of the season. He is committed to the city of the dukes for a two-year contract, supplemented by an optional year. This will be his second experience as a coach.

June, while discussions to extend his contract with Sochaux were at a standstill, the former player of FCSM and Brest (2009-2012) was cold with his management and had expressed his desire to join Dijon. For his part, Samuel Laurent, general manager of the Doubiste club, wanted him to honor his last year of contract.
