Montpellier fires coach Olivier Dall’Oglio

MONTPELLIER, France (AP) — French league club Montpellier fired coach Olivier Dall’Oglio on Monday following its seventh defeat this season.

Montpellier lost to Lens 1-0 on Saturday to lag 17 points behind leader Paris Saint-Germain after four wins in 11 league matches.

Montpellier said deputy coach Romain Piteau will serve as caretaker at least until the international break starting on Nov. 14 because of the World Cup in Qatar.

Dall’Oglio joined Montpellier in 2021 as a replacement for Michel der Zakarian. He enjoyed a good start with the southern club but results nosedived in the second half of the season and the former Brest coach has not managed to find consistency this season.

Dall’Oglio became the fifth French league coach to be fired this season after Reims’ Oscar Garcia, Lyon’s Peter Bosz, Brest’s Der Zakarian and Auxerre’s Jean-Marc Furlan.
