Monaco to decide on Lacombe future

Etienne Franzi, president of struggling Monaco stated on Monday that his club would assess the position of coach Guy Lacombe during the winter break.

During the break, which runs from 23 December 23 to 15 January, Franzi said that Monaco would take a decision on Lacombe's future "after having examined... all the possible options".

Franzi met with Lacombe and Monaco director general Marc Keller on Monday, when it was decided that Lacombe would remain in place for the league game at Paris Saint-Germain next Saturday and the visit of Sochaux on 22 December.

Monaco lost 2-0 at home to Saint-Etienne on Sunday, a sixth straight defeat in all competitions, and currently sit one place above the Ligue 1 relegation zone in 17th position.
