Baup takes over as manager of Nantes

Ligue 1 basement boys Nantes have appointed Elie Baup as their new coach on a two-year contract.

The former Saint-Etienne boss takes over from Michel Der Zakarian, sacked last week after the Canaries took just one point from their opening three matches.

A statement on the official club website said: 'After sustained success at St Etienne, Bordeaux and Toulouse, Elie Baup will take charge of the Canaries, who have fallen to 20th in the in the championship.'

On Thursday, Baup will take over from caretaker boss Christian Lariepe who oversaw a resounding 4-1 defeat against Le Mans on Saturday - their third defeat in four games.

Baup took charge of the Toulouse and St Etienne youth academies before starting his coaching career at ASSE in 1995.

He joined Bordeaux one year later where he spent six seasons, winning the Coupe de la Ligue in 2002, before rejoining St Etienne.

He took over Toulouse in 2006 and qualified for the preliminary round of the Champions League. But after a difficult campaign in 2007-8, he made way in the summer for Alain Casanova.

He has ten days to prepare for a daunting trip to Paris St Germain on September 14.
