Monaco to decide on Lacombe future
13 December 2010
Etienne Franzi, president of struggling Monaco, said on Monday that his club would assess the position of coach Guy Lacombe during the winter break.
During the break, which runs from December 23 to January 15, Franzi said that Monaco would take a decision on Lacombe's future "after having examined... all the possible options".
Franzi met with Lacombe and Monaco director general Marc Keller on Monday, when it was decided that Lacombe would remain in place for the league game at Paris Saint-Germain next Saturday and the visit of Sochaux on December 22.
According to different sources close to the club, Franzi's advisor Jean Petit could succeed Lacombe during the winter break with a brief of saving the team from relegation.
Monaco lost 2-0 at home to Saint-Etienne on Sunday, a sixth straight defeat in all competitions, and currently sit one place above the Ligue 1 relegation zone in 17th position.
