Montpellier Hérault SC have announced former Brest boss Olivier Dall'Oglio as the successor to Michel der Zakarian in the dugout at the Stade de la Mosson.

A new era is beginning at Montpellier Hérault SC. After four seasons under the guidance of Michel Der Zakarian, who steered La Paillade to an eighth-placed finish in the 2020-21 campaign, the southwestern club has welcomed Olivier Dall'Oglio - renowned for his free-flowing, attacking football - the bench at the Stade de la Mosson.

Dall'Oglio, a former fine arts student in Perpignan, signed with Brest in the summer of 2019 and spent three seasons with Stade Brestois 29. His side garnered rave reviews for their front-foot approach, spectacular goals and some big results in the first half of the season, but in the end they finished on the cusp of the drop zone in 17th.

'A beautiful future'

Now with a new challenge ahead - which includes having the attacking talents of deadly strike duo Andy Delort, Gaëtan Laborde and Stehpy Mavididi at his disposal - Dall'Oglio is excited about the 2021-22 Ligue 1 Uber Eats campaign.

"Montpellier is a club with a great history and a beautiful future," said the 57-year-old former Dijon coach. "I would like to thank the President, who has put his trust in me. It is a source of great pride to sign with Montpellier and to be offered this project."
