Romain Pitau laid off by Montpellier

After Olivier Dall’Oglio mid-October, Montpellier have announced that they are parting with a second coach this season. In a press release published on Tuesday, the MHSC indicated the precautionary layoff of Romain Pitau, as well as his assistants Pascal Baills and Frédéric Mendy, due to the poor results of the club, currently 15th in Ligue 1, with two points. ahead of the first relegation.

In the Hérault since 2009 and crowned champion of France as player and captain in 2012, Pitau immediately began his conversion to the club, successively becoming a coach in the youth categories then in the reserve. At the start of the season, the technician (45) joined the technical staff, then was quickly promoted to number one in place of Dall’Oglio after poor performances.

8 points taken out of 33 possible in Ligue 1

First interim until the truce of the World Cup, Pitau had been confirmed in his post until the end of the season. But despite the appointment of Mendy as assistant and a slight improvement in January, he did not manage to provoke this electroshock to revive the team, in a worrying position for long months even if it has never fallen into the zone of relegation.

At the head of Montpellier, Pitau has a poor record (2 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in all competitions). President Laurent Nicollin will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the center of Grammont.
