And throughout this mini-season, the yellow and black midfielder was all the triumphs. An actor of this unexpected rise. But the adventure soon turned into a nightmare. A bad dream from which the Stadistes did not come out unscathed. So much so that Romain Renard felt the need for a change of scenery. “I went to Tartas / Saint-Yaguen, in N3, because I considered that I did not have the level of N2. But I saw something else, another way of working, in a very family club, ”recalls the Mons player, back on the green square of Argenté during the summer break.
Within a yellow and black eleven still very feverish margin, Romain Renard has taken on new responsibilities, as confirmed by coach Christophe Lopes: “I consider him a technical leader, who still has progress. I love working with him. He is now more relaxed in everything he does. »
It’s true that the Mons midfielder, repositioned as second torchbearer, once again shines on his team’s game. Last Saturday against Pau FC (2-2), by opening the scoring and offering the second but to Hamed Chaïbi, he performed a more than successful performance: “There is something better in our way of playing, even if this was not the suggested result, he admits. I want to be influential in the game. I can orient myself and be in support of the attackers. Being placed higher, they could not find me. I kind of do the liaison and the support. Personally, I know that the coach can make me take a leap forward. »
This Saturday evening, Romain Renard returns to Anglet, a diligent resident of the N3, which the Stadistes also find themselves in the league. But in a few hours, it is on the front of the Coupe de France that the two formations will cross swords. “There, there are no questions to ask, you have to win, warns the Montois. There will necessarily be a link with the championship. We made a small series without defeat. A victory is always good for morale. “A qualification too, to garner a hint of confidence.
