Antonetti dismissed by LOSC
LOSC confirmed on Tuesday that they'd parted company with coach Frédéric Antonetti.
Contracted until 2020, Antonetti became the third coaching casualty of the Ligue 1 season, after Franck Passi at Marseille and Sylvain Ripoll at Lorient. Antonetti,'s role will be assumed on an interim basis by Patrick Collot, his former assistant.
Antonetti spent exactly a year in charge of Lille and took the club to the Coupe de la Ligue final last season. He leaves LOSC second-bottom of the Ligue 1 table.
In a statement Antonetti said: "It is with profound regret that I am leaving LOSC. Despite my disappointment, I would like to thank the members of my coaching staff, the players, the club employees and the supporters. I wish everyone involved in the club the chance to relive the moments of joy and communion we had last season when we finished in fifth, a position we couldn't have hoped for."
