French first division side Nantes have fired their coach Christian Gourcuff after a run of poor results, the Atlantic coast club said on Tuesday.
The final straw was the 4-0 defeat to struggling Strasbourg at the weekend.
Nantes stand 14th on 13 points, just three clear of the relegation zone.
Gourcuff, a 65-year-old journeyman, was the 14th incumbent in as many years at the passionately supported club who last won the French title in 2001.
