Lyon have confirmed that former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has resigned as coach of the six-times Ligue 1 champions following speculation linking him to the vacancy at Manchester City.

A statement on the club website said that Lyon president Michel Aulas had accepted a request from Houllier to be released from the final year of his contract.

Houllier had steered Lyon to their last two titles since succeeding Paul Le Guen at the Stade Gerland. But he will leave the club at the conclusion of Les Gones´ final game of the season, against Nantes on Saturday.
