Barbosa is interested in the OAC project. The former MHSC and Évian Thonon-Gaillard midfielder hung up his boots in 2019, after the last season in the OAC (despite the last freelance in Saint-Privat-des-Vieux). Since then, it has been common to see forty-somethings on the streets of the Cévennes capital. And if he becomes a coach, his experiences are limited to the regional level (AS Rousson, Cers Portiragnes). However, while Stéphane Saurat submitted his resignation to the leadership of Oacienne on Monday morning, the position left by the former coach of Avenir Foot Lozère is the subject of all the rumors on social networks. And, when it came to giving their opinion, some Blues and Whites supporters called out “local”. Among them, the name of Cédric Barbosa appeared several times. Contacted today, the person concerned said “very flattered by the recognition of the supporters”. And the native of Aubenas to add: “OAC is my training club and it is the club where I came to finish my career. Therefore it is a very important club in my life. I returned here three years ago and of course, if the club needs me, it is there I am to help with great pleasure. » And Cédric Barbosa to sell himself : “I have experience and experience that would easily allow me to help at this level. » The only problem, and size, the former professional does not have a diploma that allows to train at National 2 but remains convinced that a “exemption” is possible. We do not know if this appeal from the feet will find an echo among the Alesian leaders, who will recently be “can’t shake” of coach agents who are eager to offer the services of their clients.
