OFFICIAL – Jérémy Morel commits to Lorient

Nine years after leaving him, Jérémy Morel returns to FC Lorient. He wrote for one year, plus another optional season.

Jérémy Morel plays next season at FC Lorient. The experienced defender leaves Rennes for Hakes, who has just been asked to the elite. He commits himself for one season, with the possibility of another year.

Morel (36) said he was very pleased with this return to the fold: “I am proud to be able to return to my training club. FC Lorient has managed to return to Ligue 1 after three years on the ground floor and I am necessarily very happy to have returned. I came here to help him fight back to the highest level. I have had some wonderful moments here and I plan to live others with this group. From my experience and my experience, I will try to meet the expectations of the coach, staff and the club in general ”.

On the Morbihan side, we are also very pleased with this acquisition. He is a former member of the house who returns to Le Moustoir, but also an element with a very rich experience and who has 388 matches in the French elite. From a maintenance perspective, his presence will undoubtedly be very valuable.

Coach Christophe Pellissier told the club’s website: “Jérémy is a very experienced player. Turning to the fights at the top of Ligue 1 and to European meetings, it is obvious that Jérémy will give us his experience, leadership and high standards. His commitment will also be invaluable to our staff during Originally from the region and trained at the club, I am convinced that Jérémy will give the best of himself to help us sustain ourselves at the end of the season.
