Montpellier coach Girard to leave at end of season
Montpellier coach Rene Girard will leave the club at the end of the season after failing to agree a contract extension, club president Louis Nicollin said on Sunday.
"He said three weeks ago that he had taken his decision; I'm not going to beg him to stay," Nicollin told reporters.
Girard took the reins at Montpellier in 2009 and guided them to a maiden Ligue 1 title last season.
They are currently sixth in Ligue 1 after 27 matches.
