Rame replaces Sagnol as Bordeaux boss


Bordeaux have announced that Ulrich Rame will take over as head coach following the departure of Willy Sagnol.

The former France defender had been under growing pressure after his side managed just two wins in 11 matches in all competitions, while he was given a three-match touchline ban last week after confronting officials during the Coupe de France loss to Nantes in February.

"Girondins de Bordeaux and Willy Sagnol have come to an agreement to end their collaboration," a club statement released on Monday read.
