Bordeaux look to João Sacramento as a backup

Foot Mercato report that Bordeaux Sporting Director Admar Lopes has lined up ex-José Mourinho assistant at AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspur, João Sacramento, as a potential replacement for Vladimir Petkovic.

The 32-year-old may be given his first chance as a head coach, with FCGB continuing to struggle in Ligue 1 this season, currently sitting 17th in the table.

Sacramento never played professionally, despite being at SC Braga, before becoming a video analyst at Monaco and then Lille, before being promoted as an assistant coach under Christophe Galtier.
