Montanier to leave Sociedad to take Rennes reins

Philippe Montanier, whose Real Sociedad de Fútbol side occupy a UEFA Champions League qualifying spot in Spain, will become coach of Stade Rennais FC on 1 July.

Stade Rennais FC have confirmed that Philippe Montanier will take over as their new coach for next season.

Montanier, 48, has agreed a three-year contract and will be joined by assistant Michel Troin in Brittany. The move marks a return to his native France for Montanier, who has been at the helm of Real Sociedad de Fútbol in Spain since June 2011.

La Real are fourth in the Spanish Liga and in line for a place in August's UEFA Champions League play-offs. Montanier will succeed departing coach Frédéric Antonetti, with Rennes 11th in Ligue 1 with one fixture remaining.
