Struggling Lille has fired coach Herve Renard after just 13 league matches, the French club said Wednesday.

Earlier this year, the 47-year-old Frenchman led the Ivory Coast to its first African Cup of Nations title since 1992, three years after leading unheralded Zambia to victory.

But he has struggled in his first season in charge, with Lille just one point above the relegation zone in 16th place.

In a statement on its website, Lille said this is “a perilous position and certainly not in keeping with the club’s ambitions.”

Club President Michel Seydoux rebuked Renard last month for saying in a newspaper interview that he’d like to coach Marseille one day, and that Lille was merely “a springboard” toward bigger things.

Lille lost 2-1 home defeat to Marseille shortly after.


    • Don’t worry, he won’t come back as there is no one to pay his hefty salary. The time he was pa zed the salary was being paid by the mines which are now slowly winding up.

  1. The firing of Renard has not come as a surprise to many soccer lovers. Renard is not a good coach but a person who is very lucky. He is not among the sharpest tools in the game of football.

  2. opportunist umubi renar,he used zambia and ivory cost now his fellow white people got him.See the difference between buga na chifita? buga fix it fast before it becames unreversable but chifita leaves it untill it kills him.

  3. Opportunist kwisa? He was building a CV. That is what people do in the capitalist world. Imwe mufwayafye ukuba employed. Which person stays in one job when employers are looking for him with better emoluments? The dumb one

  4. Nothing wrong with selling your wares where they are needed. Loyalty doesn’t put food on an entrepreneur’s table. It puts food on a master’s table leaving crumbs for the loyal employee.
