Landry Chauvin: Sacked by Brest after poor run of form

The Brittany club slipped into the drop zone after just one win, and six points, in their last 10 games. They are currently two points adrift of safety with eight games remaining.

And a statement on the club's official website this morning read: "Stade Brestois recognise a series of bad results which have put the club's Ligue 1 survival in peril.

"This situation has led Michel Guyot, president of Stade Brestois, after consultation with the principal directors, to separate from coach Landry Chauvin.

"The club's directors will advise very soon on the appointment of a new coach."

Brest's home form has been particularly poor, with no wins and only three draws from their last nine games, and Guyot admitted that played a key role in forcing his hand.

Guyot told the club website: "It was a difficult decision to take. We always want to build for the long term but unfortunately the weight of sporting results affects any goodwill.

"We have not won at home since November 17 and are currently in the relegation zone.

"Obviously the responsibility for this difficult season does not rest solely on the shoulders of Landry Chauvin but there are no other options available with eight games remaining.

"I explained myself to Landry and saluted his professionalism and the work he did for us, but he has not lived up to our shared high hopes."Brest's home form has been particularly poor, with no wins and only three draws from their last nine games, and Guyot admitted that played a key role in forcing his hand.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
