Toulouse, France, Oct 10, 2019 (AFP) - French Ligue 1 club Toulouse said Thursday they had sacked coach Alain Casanova, after their latest defeat left the club languishing close to the relegation zone.
In a statement Toulouse said Denis Zanko, the club's academy director, would take over coaching until further notice.
Casanova returned to the club for a second stint as coach at the start of last season and won 10 of his 47 games in charge.
His sacking came after a 3-1 defeat at the weekend at home to Bordeaux which left the club in 18th place in the league, one place above automatic relegation.
"The club thanks Alain Casanova for his commitment and professionalism during all his years spent at the club," Toulouse said in a statement.
He was sacked after his first stint as coach in March 2015.
