Ligue 1 strugglers Metz have sacked coach Francis de Taddeo following their 14th defeat of the campaign.

Saturday´s 2-0 defeat at Lorient leaves the promoted side rock-bottom with just seven points from 19 games and a return to Ligue 2 looks inevitable with 17 points already separating them from safety.

A statement on the club website read: "Following on from the problems the team have encountered, Metz have decided to part from Francis De Taddeo."
