Jean Fernandez: Resigned from position f

Montpellier coach Jean Fernandez has resigned after overseeing a run of seven Ligue 1 games without victory that has left the 2012 champions flirting with relegation.

Wednesday night's 2-0 defeat to Lorient at the Stade de la Mosson was a fourth reverse in seven matches while Montpellier have won only twice this season under the supervision of 59-year-old Fernandez.

The former Marseille and Auxerre coach replaced Lille-bound Rene Girard in the summer and delivered a 2-1 home win over Sochaux in his third league game in charge. MHSC beat Lyon 5-1 on October 6 but have not won since.

A Tweet from Fernandez on the club's official Twitter account read: "In the interests of the club and the team I have decided to stop."

Montpellier owner Laurent Nicollin has entrusted long-serving coach Pascal Baills with the first team while he "studies options" for Fernandez's successor.
