Disappearance of coach Alex Dupont, symbol of grassroots football steeped in old-fashioned values which sometimes made a nick of glitter football as during Gueugnon’s victory against PSG in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue. https://t.co/y12uoRTbvB

Alex Dupont was obviously a real trainer who brought happiness to all the clubs he has been to but he was also a wonderful man who made you happy every time you meet. Very sad today.
