Heyneke Meyer said
It has always been my intention to do what is best for this great club - Stade Français and with this in mind, I hereby offer my resignation as coach of Stade Français. It has been an honour to coach the club. I have had a great life experience coaching Stade Français and I have loved my time in Paris. I would like to thank Dr. Wild, who is quite simply, a wonderful man to work for and I am grateful for the opportunity and all the support he gave me. I would also like to thank the players and my support staff as well as the wonderful supporters. I will always remain a supporter of Stade Français and wish the club all the success for the future
