“I look forward to working with Younes Bouida,” Marc Boudreau said. “He has the experience needed to bring our program forward. He has excellent soccer knowledge and is familiar with our players. We wanted to add to our present agreement with Soccer New Brunswick to include Younes Bouida as head coach. We already had an agreement for technical support for our women's and men’s teams from Soccer New Brunswick employees.”

“This partnership with the Université de Moncton will offer a new tool in soccer development in the province,” Younes Bouida said. “We have been involved in developing our high-performance program for a number of years and the Aigles Bleus program should see its benefits as well as our partners and round ball enthusiasts. New Brunswick athletes should be able to attain and develop to their full potential, enabling them to dream and play where no one has been before.”
