Robin shown the door by Troyes

Ligue 1 basement club Troyes have made their second coaching change of the season after sacking Claude Robin on Thursday.

Robin had only been in the job for seven weeks following his appointment as Jean-Marc Furlan’s replacement Stade de l’Aube in December.

However, the 4-0 defeat at Guingamp on Wednesday was the final straw for the club’s board, who removed the coach from his post after overseeing just one win in six League 1 games – a run that left the team rock-bottom of the standings, 15 points adrift of safety.

ESTAC confirmed that the first team will be handled by Mohamed Bradja, Michel Padovani and Olivier Tingry in the interim.

A statement from the Aube outfit read: “The club management have discharged Claude Robin from his first-team duties.

“In a very difficult sporting context, this decision has been taken to preserve the interests of everyone.

“The first team will be managed, until further notice, jointly by Mohamed Bradja, Michel Padovani and Olivier Tingry.”
