Rumors have been swirling for some time about scrum-half Morgan Parra’s future. According to several media, the former glory of Clermont would consider ending his career as a professional rugby player with Stade Français at the end of the season. Information that the main interested party denied on the show Europe 1 Sport (every evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.).

“The media announced my end of career so that’s a bit more complicated for me because I didn’t even have the opportunity to announce it or announce something. There’s nothing officially done,” said the former French international, freshly arrived at the capital club last summer.

In discussion with the staff

Gala recruit for Stade Français, Morgan Parra had been chosen to take the leadership of the team until 2024. A time injured and therefore unavailable to play with his new club, the scrum-half was finally aligned eight times , each time as holder since his arrival.

“I met the future staff Laurent (Labit) and Karim (Ghezal). We are discussing my role, if I have to go to the other side, if I decide to go medical joker. There are a lot of discussions in progress. Now we will see, we will refine but in a few weeks it will be decided”, declared the player who for the moment does not foresee an imminent end of career. “I’m not saying, however, that I’m not studying it (his retirement from professional playing),” he continued.

At 34, Morgan Parra should however be less present on the ground. The Parisian club would have also obtained the agreement of two other scrum-half for imminent arrivals: the New Zealand international Brad Weber and the Bordelais Jules Gimberts, which could precipitate the passage of the former Clermontois on the bench . “I must also be ready in my head to go to the other side”, ended up conceding Morgan Parra in Europe 1 Sport.
