Philippe Gaillot leaves FC Metz

At 57, Philippe Gaillot left FC Metz, his lifelong club: the one where he was trained, played for twenty years as a professional (1982-2002) and was a member of the sports management since. ” After the reorganization carried out last June within the sports management, the one who wore the garnet jersey 487 times has chosen to take the path of a new sports project”, the club said in a statement on Friday, formalizing the departure of this legend from the club.

As a player, he won a Coupe de France in 1988, a Coupe de la Ligue in 1996 and the title of vice-champion of France in D1 in 1997-1998. As soon as his career as a professional footballer ended in 2002, he joined the club’s sports management, climbing the ranks until in 2012 he took on the role of deputy general manager in charge of sports policy.

During these ten years, Philippe Gaillot will have thus contributed to the rise of National in Ligue 1 in two years (2012-2014), to the conquest of two new titles of champion of France of Ligue 2 (2014 and 2019) and to the tenth place in Ligue 1 obtained at the end of the 2020-2021 season.

He will also have piloted the sports project of the subsidiary club of RFC Seraing and coordinated the sports relationship between FC Metz and the Generation Foot Academy, where Sadio Mané (Bayern Munich, DE) and Ismaïla Sarr (Watford, ENG) come from.
