Francis Gillot named Bordeaux boss

Bordeaux have confirmed the appointment of Francis Gillot as their new coach on a two-year deal.

Gillot impressed in charge of Sochaux last season, leading the team to a fifth-place finish and qualification for next season's Europa League.

The 51-year-old will be joined at Bordeaux by assistants Rene Lobello and Alain Benedet.

A statement on the club's official website www.girondins.com read: "Bordeaux is pleased to announce the signing of Francis Gillot. The former Sochaux coach has committed to two seasons at the club.''

Bordeaux finished seventh in Ligue 1 last season in a generally disappointing campaign which culminated in the sacking of Jean Tigana last month. Eric Bedouet fulfilled the role of caretaker for the final three weeks of the season.

Gillot had already spoken of his interest in taking charge at Bordeaux prior to today's confirmation of the switch, and will be aiming to improve the fortunes of a club which won the Ligue 1 title just two years ago.

He told newspaper Sud Ouest last week: "I have no preconceived idea or team in my mind yet. What interests me is the project over one, two or three years.

"It takes work, consistency, good players and a good atmosphere every day. And patience. Then we will take stock.

"It's always complicated to announce targets. The less we talk, the fewer problems there will be. In Ligue 1, there is very little to separate the teams - a bad run and you find yourself down; a good run and you're up.''
