Bernard Casoni becomes new manager of struggling Ligue 1 side Lorient

Bernard Casoni managed Auxerre from 2012-2014.

Lorient have announced the appointment of Bernard Casoni as head coach until the end of the season.

The news comes 17 days after the Ligue 1 strugglers sacked former boss Sylvain Ripoll following a 1-0 defeat at Dijon and just two wins all season.

The 55-year-old former Marseille, Auxerre and Valenciennes boss has a tough challenge on his hands as he aims to take Les Merlus off the foot of the table.

A statement on the club's official website read: "FC Lorient today decided to appoint Bernard Casoni as coach of the first team until the end of the season.

"The former professional player who won the Champions League in 1993 with Marseille and former French international [30 caps], has had several coaching experiences in the past including Olympique Marseille, SC Bastia at the Evian TGFC.

"Bernard Casoni, with the current technical staff of the FCL, will hope to revive FC Lorient and maintain the club's position in Ligue 1.''

Lorient have collected just seven points from 12 matches this season and were knocked out of the Coupe de la Ligue after a 3-2 defeat to local rivals Rennes.

Casoni will be presented to the media on Wednesday evening, eight days before his first match in charge -- a home clash with title contenders Monaco.
