Swiss club Neuchatel appoints coach Olle-Nicolle

French coach Didier Olle-Nicolle has been appointed by

struggling Swiss club Neuchatel Xamax.

Neuchatel says on its website that Olle-Nicolle has signed a

contract through June 2011 with the club, which is ninth in the

10-team Swiss league.

Olle-Nicolle formerly coached French first division team Nice

but was fired in March.

He replaces Jean-Michel Aeby who was fired after just four

months in charge when Neuchatel lost four of its first six

matches.
