Jean Lechantre is former Lille legend. He was left winger of the Lille's greatest generation of players. Jean was very fast player with great dribbling and good crosses from the flank for Jean Barrate. Although Lechantre himself was decent scorer as well, had solid shot and even scored some headers despite the short size. Lechantre played throughout his career with only two clubs in the immediate vicinity of his birthplace - but beyond the Belgian-French border. Even as a 12-year-old he joined Olympique Lille, where he remained for 18 years faithfully and with whom he already in the season 1940/41 to the starting eleven was one. Until the liberation of the end of 1944 subject to the matches in the "forbidden zone" (zone interdite) north of France declared in comparison with the others, by German troops occupied parts of the country but particularly severe restrictions. Immediately after the end of World War II occupation and he won with the club, several national titles in the championship and national cup competition. In the long history of the French Cup only a handful of players who for five consecutive cup finals took part and three of them - also in the series -. have won Lechantre this was achieved from 1945 to 1949, with his first and his last finals, each with a defeat (0:3 or 2:5) against Racing Paris ended. In 1949 he scored his only goal for the interim final 1:5. 1946 Lechantre Lille won the championship yet also the Division 1, and hence the rolled gold. This was with the OSC from 1948 to 1951 also have four consecutive runner-up in 1951 and denied another final that Lille lost the Coupe Latine against AC Milan but with 0:5. 1952 moved Lechantre, which was in the LOSC, Jean Vincent, a young adult competitor, a few kilometers further to CO Roubaix-Tourcoing. There he met former OSC players like goalkeeper Julien and Jean Darui Baratte and some other well-known footballer (Lazare Gianessi, René Dereuddre, André Simonyi), but CORT closed seasons, only twice as a table-15. from 1955 and had to descend a tail light even in the second division. The left wing then took the offer of AC Cambrai, to work as a coach. Jean Lechantre played between May 1947 and December 1949 three A-international caps for France. The "out of bounds shy and reserved" attacker made his debut against England, His second game against Czechoslovakia was followed by only a half years later. . When the French shortly thereafter in Florence in the decider to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil with 2:3 after extra time defeated by Yugoslavia, in turn Lechantre was used. This was third at the same time Lechantres last appearance in the jersey of the Bleus - in terms of its skills and his Palmarès a "flagrant contradiction". The transition from player to coach Lechantre occurred during his four years in Cambrai. In 1959 he was the CO Roubaix-Tourcoing instructor. It was followed in the 1960s, activities in amateur, so at the Sporting Club Hazebrouck, Ronse in Belgium and in France again, the Iris Club Lambersart. Finally, he returned to this function back to his first club: the Lille he was responsible for many years for the junior and the A-and B-youth teams. Even Pierre Lechantre, one of his sons graduated from a long career as a professional footballer, which began at Lille, and later - including 1999 to 2001 in Cameroon as a coach.
