Manu Abreu, the ex-coach of FC Chartres died

His smile, his kindness, his benevolence, his qualities as a technician will have defined the endearing personality of Manu Abreu, this man who lived football as a person. A former professional footballer with a remarkable career (Stade Reims, 1979-1983 then Paris SG, 1983-1984), it is above all on the coaches’ bench that his career has been recognized. And who led him to settle on that of FC Chartres (2011-2013).

Former FC Chartres coach Manuel Abreu hangs up: “Not myself lately”

When he retired last season, Manu Abreu saw himself, with his wife, return to his native land, Portugal, and settle in the Algarve. “There, where the sun is most present”, he liked to specify to his interlocutors.

The sports editorial staff of L’Écho Républicain presents its most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
