Strasbourg have sacked coach Julien Stephan.
Stephan took charge in July 2021 and led Strasbourg to a sixth-placed finish in Ligue 1 in his first season at the helm.
That was the club’s first top-six finish in the top-flight since the 1979-80 campaign, but Strasbourg begin 2023 with relegation a real possibility.
They are second bottom in Ligue 1 with just one win from their 17 games and sit four points adrift of safety.
Assistant Mathieu Le Scornet will take temporary charge, with Strasbourg’s first game without Stephan a tough assignment against Lens, who are just four points shy of league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, on Wednesday.
The President of RCSA, Marc Keller, notified Julien Stéphan, coach of the professional Racing team, on Monday January 9, 2023, of his layoff as a precaution. The coaching will be provided from today and until further notice by Mathieu Le Scornet.
