In the eyes of CF Montreal sporting director Olivier Renard, no success is more important than reconciliation with the club’s supporters. During the traditional segment in the eye of the fox, The Belgian, who was broadcast on TVA Sports during the CF Montreal game preview, sent love to Montreal fans.
“My greatest pride is what’s happening tonight: the full houses. It’s not the players, it’s not the coaches, it’s really our current situation with the fans. I think we’ve managed to regain the fans’ trust and the goal is to move on.

Waterman at the World Cup?
For Olivier Renard, the presence of CF Montreal’s Canadian centre-back Joel Waterman is a possibility. “He already has the automatisms with Alistair Johnston and Kamal Miller. At this level, I think it can be something very good for Canada, but it’s not up to me to decide. I think his performances can be enough to make the Canadian team.”
Offer already sold in January?
Acquired by the Chicago Fire this summer, 22-year-old Nigerian Chinonso Offor was loaned to Belgian Premier League club SV Zulte Waregem this week. During his brief stint in Montreal, he didn’t get a chance to play due to traffic jams in the forward position.
“It’s a Belgian club that I know well. I also know the coach well and normally he should have playing time, there is a buy option for her which is very high. If the option is exercised we will have made a profit, but the aim is for him to return to us in January,” explained Olivier Renard.
