This follows the termination of the French Ligue 1 season as a result on the Coronavirus pandemic, after the French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe suspended all sporting activities in France till September 1st.
“We had a discussion on Friday and we arrived at a decision,” Montpellier’s President Laurent Nicollin declared in an interview with Midi Libre.
“Now he is thinking about what he will do after his playing career. We have given him a time frame to tell us what he wants to do, whether he wants to coach here.
“He is in the same situation like all our club legends, so we have left the door open for him.”
Souleymane Camara joint Montpellier in 2007 initially on loan from Nice, before making the move permanent in 2008.
He played 433 games for Montpellier, scoring 76 goals for the French Ligue 1 outfit, helping them to a historic French Ligue 1 title in the 2011-2012 season.
He is a true legend of Montpellier. The native of Dakar also played 35 times for the Teranga Lions of Senegal, scoring 7 goals.
