Albert Cartier will not extend with FCSM



FC Sochaux-Montbeliard and his head coach Albert Cartier have mutually decided not to pursue their collaboration at the end of the 2016/17 season and their contractual engagement.

The club would like to thank Albert Cartier for his efforts and the great moments experienced under his leadership, notably in the national cups and elimination of five Ligue 1 clubs, a semi-final in the French Cup and a quarter-final in the League Cup.

FCSM is also thankful to Albert Cartier for having allowed the club to stay up in the 2015/16 season and given the opportunity to many young players to debut in the first team and play in it regularly - respecting the youth development tradition of the club.

The club would like to wish Albert Cartier the very best for the continuation of his career and hopes that the team, under his guidance for another six Domino’s Ligue 2 matches, will finish the season in the best way possible.

FC Sochaux-Montbeliard begins today with the search of a new head coach as well as considerations regarding the composition of its future technical staff.

No further comments will be made on this topic in the coming weeks, neither by the club, nor by Albert Cartier.
