L’Équipe are reporting that Stade Brestois are set to name Eric Roy as the club’s new manager in the coming hours. He will replace Michel Der Zakarian, who was relieved of his duties in October.
The club, who are currently 17th in Ligue 1, and therefore in the relegation zone. They lost 1-0 against Monaco on Sunday, and have been managerless since 11th October. However, that is about to change, according to L’Équipe. The interim period has been handled by Julien Lachuer, Bruno Grougi and Yvan Bourgis.
However, they are now set to be replaced by former OGC Nice manager Roy. He has not held a managerial position since the 2010/11 season when he managed the Riviera side for just eight months. He has since held the role of sporting director at Nice and Watford, as well as the role of sporting manager at RC Lens, which he held between 2017-2019.
Roy has been the likes of Habib Beye and Benoît Tavenot to the job, and he will have the objective of keeping Brest in Ligue 1.
