Ligue 1: Julien Stephan sacked in Strasbourg, Lucien Favre sacked in Nice

Strasbourg “sacks” its coach Julien Stéphan “as a precautionary measure” this Monday, January 9, while Lucien Favre was sacked by Nice a few hours later.

They will not have resisted their team’s elimination in the Coupe de France. Julien Stéphan was “fired as a precaution” by Racing Club de Strasbourg this Monday, while a few hours later Lucien Favre was fired from his coaching post in Nice. Both pay for the poor results of their education. The Alsatian club is only 19e of Ligue 1 with just one win in 17 days and eliminated in 32 on Fridaye Final of the Angers Coupe de France.

Nice, for their part, were also dismissed this weekend in the Coupe de France by the National du Puy club (1-0) and after three games remain without a win in the league, where the Riviera club is 11the Square. Lucien Favre, who returned at the start of the season, will be replaced by former reserve coach Didier Digard. In Strasbourg, Mathieu Le Scornet, Julien Stéphan’s assistant, will lead the team “until further notice”.

Your mission begins this Wednesday, April 18e Day of Ligue 1. And the Alsatian club will have a lot to do with hosting Lens, Delphin from PSG, at La Meinau, while Nice host Montpellier, who also changed coaches a bit earlier in the season. A total of nine coaches have been fired since the exercise began last August.
