After Bordeaux’s 4-0 loss to Sochaux at home, Bordeaux coach Jean Tigana has resigned from the team. More news to be coming on this in the coming hours.
According to sources reporting on the situation, Tigana made his decision after his daughter was verbally abused by Bordeaux fans during the 4-0 loss.
Bordeaux, who were in need of a win in order to keep their hopes high for a possible European qualification spot, had the perfect opportunity to take three points at home against Sochaux, the second worse road team in Ligue 1.
Instead, Bordeaux allowed four goals in the first 30 minutes and didn’t show any drive the rest of the game. In addition to the poor play of the home side, players were openly showing their frustration on the pitch as well.
The biggest rift in the match was when defender Michael Ciani was substituted by Jussie after the 4th goal. When returning to the bench, both Ciani and Tigana were shouting at each other on the Bordeaux bench.
We will have more news on the Tigana situation once it becomes available.
