‘FC Nantes and Christian Gourcuff have decided to finish their collaboration as of Tuesday, December 8, 2020.’

‘Arrived on August 8, 2019, a few days before the start of the 2019-2020 season, Christian Gourcuff will have brought his vision of football and all his experience to the professional group during his stay on the banks of the Erdre.’

‘FC Nantes sincerely wishes to thank the Breton technician for his professionalism and wishes him the best for the future.’

‘From today, the professional workforce will be under the orders of Patrick Collot who will act as interim. He will be assisted in this mission by members of the current technical staff.’

Nantes are presently 14th within the table on 13 points from 13 video games. They’ve picked up two points from their final 4 matches.
