Laurent Batlles will remain ESTAC Troyes boss if City Football Group take over

MaLigue2 report that Ligue 2 club ESTAC Troyes will be managed by Laurent Batlles this season, regardless if any takeover attempt of the Daniel Masoni-owned club is completed, with City Football Group in ongoing talks to buy the football team.

Australian press has reported in recent days that Erick Mombaerts, current manager of Melbourne FC, another City Football Group club, would return to France to take over ESTAC Troyes if the sale of the side went through.

But local sources indicate that Batlles, who signed a contract extension at the beginning of the summer until June 2023, will be remaining with ESTAC, even if the club is purchased.
