See you soon, Dim!

He will come back. Because this is what Marc Keller promised him. And because Racing will not forget him. “Dim is our warrior. He arrived at the club ten years ago, when we were in the National. He has experienced everything here, the joys as well as the sorrows. He is a member of our family, and we all love him,” explains the President.

At the end of May, before the start of the team’s league match against Paris Saint-Germain, which would seal Strasbourg’s place in Ligue 1 for the upcoming season, the club, the supporters’ federation and the entire Meinau paid a vibrant tribute to the man who, in ten years of good and loyal service, will have played 331 matches and scored 35 goals in blue and white, in all competitions.

Dimitri Liénard, who has just signed for SC Bastia (Ligue 2), has made his mark on the history of Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace, not only with his legendary goals (his free kick in added time against Lyon in 2018, his “panenka” in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue the following year), his technique and his commitment, but also for his love of the shirt, his big heart and his authentic and endearing character.

After the match against Paris and this emotionally charged moment,” continues Marc Keller, “I met with him with Loïc Désiré and Kader Mangane and we offered him redeployment, either immediately if he decided to stop playing, or later, when he chose to end his career. Those who have given so much, like him, have our full consideration and we will welcome him again very soon with open arms. He will then be able to spend time in different areas of club activity, such as training, recruitment, sports coordinating, sales, marketing, to decide on the path in which he will continue his professional life at Strasbourg.”
