Metz fires coach Francis De Taddeo, club last in French league

Metz has fired coach Francis De Taddeo, the struggling French club said Sunday.
Metz has won only once in 19 games this season and is in last place in the 20-team French league with just seven points. Saturday's 2-0 loss at Lorient was the 14th defeat of the season for Metz and its last game before the winter break.
"Metz Football Club has decided to part ways with Francis De Taddeo," the club said on its Web site. "The two parties are to meet in January to finalize the terms of his departure."
De Taddeo took over Metz's reserve team in 1996, and then became first team coach last season, when he guided Metz to the second division title and promotion to the top flight.
