Philippe Montanier is about to leave Toulouse. According to information from L'Equipe, which we are able to confirm, TFC has decided to sack its coach. The 58-year-old technician was under contract until June 2024. Winner of the Coupe de France after a demonstration of his team against Nantes (5-1) on April 29, champion of Ligue 2 in 2022, Montanier was weakened by the dismissal for serious misconduct of his assistant Michaël Debève during the break of the World Cup.
The coach also certainly paid a final ranking (13th) far from the club's objectives. On Tuesday, President Damien Comolli recalled that Toulouse was aiming between 10th and 11th place.
The Spaniard Carles Martinez Novell (39), already present in the staff, is expected to succeed Philippe Montanier. Arrived this winter, it would be in the small papers of the owners of the club, RedBird Capital Partners. It remains to be seen if Toulouse will not finally settle on a more experienced coach.
