Herve Renard confirms Sochaux departure

Sochaux coach Herve Renard announces that he will leave the club after his side were relegated from France's top division.

Sochaux coach Herve Renard has announced that he will leave the Stade Auguste Bonal following the club's relegation to Ligue 2 on Saturday.

The former Zambia coach needed a win in Sochaux's last game to avoid relegation but a brace from Daniel Wass consigned them to second tier football next season.

"Even if we had remained in Ligue 1, it was framed in my head for three months, I wanted to finish in beauty but this is not the case," Renard told reporters.

"My priority is to stay in Ligue 1 and Europe, to play the Champions League or the Europa League.

"I'll wait a bit, and if I have nothing, I return to the continent (Africa), I should not have too much trouble finding work."

Sochaux have taken part in every season in the French top division since it was rebranded in 2002.
