Cup finalists
Châteauroux qualified for Europe by finishing runners-up in the French Cup to Paris Saint-Germain FC, who will take part in the UEFA Champions League after finishing second in Ligue 1 last season.

Trotignon caution
The latest addition to their squad, 20-year-old Mulenga from Kitwe club Afrisport, is viewed as one for the future after impressing in a friendly against SO Romorantinais. "We want to gamble on him for the future," said Châteauroux official Patrick Trotignon. "He won't play immediately in Ligue 2 although he has the ability."
