Like the legend Georges Gope-Fenepej who plays for Concarneau in the National (third tier), Jekob Jeno is one of two neo-Caledonians who play in the top-three divisions of French football.
The last time Jeno had played for Grenoble had been in the Ligue 2 defeat to Metz on December 30th, he had started the season as a starter, but some injuries hindered his progress.
Now last January 8th he played for the first time in 2023 after being on the bench for a few matches – Jeno joined in the 79th minute in Grenoble’s 1-0 win against Vierzon FC in the French Cup round of 16. With the qualification Grenoble will face giants Lyon in the next knockout round.
This season Jekob Jeno has played 11 matches; 560 minutes in total for Grenoble. Jeno’s side is doing well this season as they are battling for promotion to French top-tier league; Grenoble is currently ranked 4th in the process, just two points behind Bordeaux that is ranked 3rd.
