Tigana quits over daughter abuse

Eric Bedouet took charge of training on Monday morning as Bordeaux returned after a traumatic weekend which saw them lose coach Jean Tigana following the 4-0 defeat by Sochaux.

Tigana played for Les Girondins for eight years in the 1980s before returning as head coach last year when he replaced Laurent Blanc who had taken over as coach of the national team.

However, Tigana resigned following Saturday's disastrous home loss citing verbal abuse aimed at his teenage daughter.

He said: "It was a disastrous evening for the club and for me. My daughter was the victim of verbal aggression in the stands. She's already had problems at school. I have taken my decision and my spell with Bordeaux is at an end.

"People think the problem is Jean Tigana. They go as far as abusing a 16-year-old girl. That is shocking. For me, that is not what football is about.''

Bedouet, who has been at the club since 1998, has been put in temporary charge until the end of the season as Bordeaux look to salvage something from a campaign which sees them sitting ninth, four points and three places adrift of a European place.

Bedouet was joined by goalkeeping coach Franck Mantaux, Philippe Lucas - who will be the former's number two - and Lilian Laslandes who will work with the forwards.

Yoan Gouffran, who has been out since mid-February with an ankle injury for which he underwent surgery, was working with the physio as he continues his recovery.
