Gourvennec quits Guingamp for Bordeaux

Jocelyn Gourvennec has quit his coaching job at Guingamp and agreed terms instead with Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux, the two clubs said on Friday.

"Guingamp confirms it has agreed terms with Bordeaux for the transfer of coach Jocelyn Gourvennec, and given them permission to negotiate," Guingamp said.

Bordeaux sacked coach Willy Sagnol in March and replaced him with an interim boss, their former goalkeeper Ulrich Rame, and said they had now agreed terms with Gourvennec.

"Welcome Jocelyn," Bordeaux said on their Twitter page.

Gourvennec led Guingamp out of the second tier two years ago and qualified them for the Europa League last season, before finishing this term just five points above the relegation zone.

Former France coach Raymond Domenech is thought to be in the frame to take over the Guingamp hot seat.
