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.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
