Official | Bernard Blaquart resigns as Nîmes boss, Jérôme Arpinon replaces him

Ligue 1 side Nîmes have today announced the resignation of manager Bernard Blaquart.

The 62-year-old has left the club by mutual termination agreement, in a decision instigated by the manager owing to months of disagreement with club president Rani Assaf.

Blaquart’s assistant, Jérome Arpinon, replaces him as the club’s new manager.

Blaquart did exceptional work with Les Crocos, having saved the club from relegation in the 3rd division, taking them up to Ligue 1 in 2018 and staved off relegation from the 1st division twice, finishing 9th in 2019 and 18th in 2020.
