Sociedad signs Valenciennes coach Montanier
Real Sociedad has hired Valenciennes coach Philippe Montanier to
lead the Spanish league club for the next two seasons.
The 47-year-old Frenchman replaces Martin Lasarte, who was fired
after guiding the Basque club to a 15th-place finish and just
avoiding relegation only in the last round of games.
Montanier is coming off a 12th-place finish with French club
Valenciennes after his second year in charge. Assistant coach
Michel Troin will join Montanier, also.
