Like the Girondins de Bordeaux, Stade Malherbe de Caen will be in Ligue 2 next season. The Caen club will have an upcoming reflection for the position of goalkeeper, ad West-France. Indeed, the position of number 1 will again be filled since Rémy Riou will not be extended. There is one goalkeeper currently at Malherbe, the inexperienced Sullivan Péan, for whom doubts remain about a full season in Ligue 2.
“The club would only recruit accessible if it unearthed a goalkeeper with very superior guarantees, and the candidates are not legion. Relations with Benoît Costil, 34 years old and at the end of his long-standing contract in Bordeaux” (Ouest-France)
As almost every year – ditto in Brittany – the name of Benoit Costil reappears. Trained at the Stade Malherbe in Caen, the one who will not be returned to Gironde (end of contract) could find the love of his debut, but also… his brother. Eddy Costil extended his contract with the SMC for two years last April. He is currently the goalkeeper coach, while the father, Philipis the vice-president of the association.
Whoever turns 35 in July will have to make big sacrifices since his salary peaks at 180,000 or 200,000 euros depending on the source.
In Ligue 2, he would therefore find the club with the scapular on the road, he who is part of the list of players who brought him down to the second division.
