BRUSSELS (AP) — French club Troyes fired coach Bruno Irles on Tuesday after a six-match winless run.

Irles had been appointed in January after Laurent Batlles was fired. He was under contract until June 2023

Claude Robin has been named as caretaker, the club said.

Troyes is winless in the league since Sept. 18 and stands 13th in the table after 14 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

Irles won two league titles with Monaco as a defender and was part of the coaching staff under Didier Deschamps after retiring in 2003.

The Frenchman then coached Monaco’s reserves from 2011-13 and had regular work as a television pundit.
