Former Fulham manager Jean Tigana has left his role with Toulon after a year as the club’s general manager.

In a statement sent to Agence France-Presse, Tigana said: “I inform the people of Toulon, the actors of French and international football, and the public as a whole, of my resignation, today, from the voluntary functions for which I have been responsible for a season with SC Toulon”.

The 66 year-old, famous for his role in France’s fabulous 1984 European Championship success, was appointed to a senior role at his club as a player in February 2021. Tigana, who made his Toulon debut aged 20, Toulon, who finished ninth in Group C of the National 2 after being relegated last season, had recently announced the appointment of Marcel Dib as sporting director.
