Yoann Gourcuff could have definitely turned his back on football. Currently without a club since his departure from Dijon last January, the former French international has not been doing anything so far.
Younger, Gourcuff had hesitated between football and tennis
Indeed, the Gazette Center Morbihan reveals that the midfielder took a license at the Tennis Club Larmor Beach, his place of residence. This weekend, the husband of TV presenter Karine Ferri has already won his first match, against the senior men's team 1 tennis club Baud at the county championship. Yoann Gourcuff (15/4) faced an opponent ranked 15/3.
See the old Lyonnais fork to the small yellow ball is not necessarily a surprise. Younger, the son of Christian Gourcuff, current coach of FC Nantes, had just hesitated between tennis and football, before opting for the ball.
In 1998, he even took part in the Auray Open Super 12, alongside a certain Rafael Nadal, the final winner of the tournament. Obviously, Yoann Gourcuff has kept beautiful remains, since he has won against an opponent ranked higher than him. It remains to be seen whether he will persist in this way.
