Subject: Deschamps stands down at Monaco

AS Monaco coach Didier Deschamps has resigned following a
disappointing start to the season. The French side have installed
club stalwart Jean Petit, who had been Deschamps' assistant, as his
replacement on a temporary basis.

Resignation accepted
Deschamps offered his resignation to Monaco president Michel Pastor
this morning and it was accepted. Pastor said: "I saw Deschamps at
11.30am when he gave me his resignation letter. Of course I accepted
it. I am not going to stand in the way of someone who wants to leave."

Disastrous defeats
Monaco lost 2-0 at home to Stade Rennais on Sunday, finishing with
nine men after Akis Zikos and Sébastien Squillaci were sent off.
Having been expected to challenge for the title, they are now 15th in
Ligue 1 after four defeats in their first seven games. The
principality outfit also lost to Real Betis Balompié in the Champions
League third qualifying round.

Police protection
Monaco have not scored at home in domestic competition for two and a
half months, and Deschamps was absent from Sunday's post-match press
conference for the second weekend running. He left the stadium under
police protection while a group of supporters called for his

'Not a big club'
Deschamps recently complained about the club's lack of finances,
saying Monaco "are not a big club". Yet last night defender Gaël
Givet appeared convinced Deschamps would continue: "We know him, he's
not the kind of person to quit. We have to react together. We have to
believe in him, otherwise there's no point playing," he said.

Champions League final
The 36-year-old former French international was appointed in 2001.
The highlight of his tenure came in May 2004 when Monaco reached the
Champions League final, losing 3-0 to Porto. His immediate successor,
Petit, has spent 35 years at Stade Louis II, working as chief scout,
sporting manager, assistant coach and now caretaker boss. "We will
stay calm and wait a fortnight before announcing the new coach," said

Glittering career
Defensive midfielder Deschamps enjoyed a glittering playing career,
collecting World Cup, European Championship and two Champions League
winner's medals. He played 103 times for France, and had spells at
Nantes, Olympique de Marseille, Girondins de Bordeaux, Juventus,
Chelsea and Valencia. The Monaco job was his first as head coach.


Excellent!! Monaco isn't a football club anyway.

I saw it by chance. What a good moment for him. I hope that he gets
more play minutes after this.

Would the Korean military send a young commando for training reasons?
