Lyon coach Bruno Genesio said on Saturday he will leave the club at the end of the season.
Genesio, who was appointed in December 2015, was set to extend his contract for two years after reportedly reaching a deal with president Jean-Michel Aulas.
But Lyon have lost their last three games, with a 2-1 loss at Nantes in the French league on Friday following a 3-1 home loss to Dijon.
“For some time I have faced a negative climate, which can be a drag on the players and the club,” said Genesio, who has been criticised by fans throughout the season. “I informed my players this morning (and now) I’m counting on everyone to (support) the team.”
