He announced on 28 August that “beautiful things are to come”. Serge Akakpo will make his debut on a bench a few days after officially announcing his retirement from sports.
The former Auxerre defender is expected at Sainte-Geneviève des Bois, a National 2 club (4th division) in France. He will be one of the assistants to Emmanuel Dorado, the club’s head coach.
Already with a UEFA B license, Akakpo will use his time with this club to continue his coaching career.
Appearing in recent weeks on television, the former U17 European champion should not let go the TV consulting. He who passed through Zilina (Slovakia) or Trabzonspor (Turkey) will continue making comments on matches on Canal + International.
But it’s on the bench that the former Togolese defender more focuses his future career off the pitch. His debut with Sainte-Geneviève will be scrutinized. After 3 days of the championship, the Ile-de-France club stands in the red zone within Pool A with 2 points.
