Philippe Montagnier is about to leave Toulouse. According to information from the team, which we can confirm, TFC has decided to fire its coach. The contract of the 58-year-old technician was calculated until June 2024. Winner of the Coupe de France after his side’s 5-1 show in front of Nantes on 29 April, 2022 Ligue 2 champion Montagnier has been weakened by a sacking for serious misdeeds by his deputy, Michael Debeve, during the World Cup truce.
The coach also, of course, paid for the final place (13th), far from the goals of the club. On Tuesday, President Damien Comolli recalled that Toulouse was aiming for a place between 10th and 11th.
Spaniard Carles Martínez Novell (39), already in the squad, is expected to replace Philippe Montagnier. Arriving this winter, he will be in the small papers of the owners of the club RedBird Capital Partners. It remains to be seen if Toulouse will settle for a more experienced coach.
