Sousa resigns as coach of Bordeaux

Paulo Sousa quits as Bordeaux coach

Former Portuguese international Paulo Sousa resigned as coach of French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux on Thursday after just over a year in charge.

The 49-year-old Sousa, who led the team to a modest 12th place last season, apparently told his players in training that he was leaving.

He arrived in March 2019 after a short spell in China and was under contract until June 2022.

"We take note of the decision of Mr. Paulo Sousa to leave the club," said Bordeaux in a statement.

"We regret this decision as well as the way in which his announcement was made and we will examine what the club will do."

Sousa, a two-time Champions League winner as a player, starred for Benfica and Juventus in his playing days.

He has held numerous coaching jobs including spells with Swansea, Leicester and QPR in the English leagues.
