Sousa set for Bordeaux?

Former Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa is the favourite to become the next Coach of French side Bordeaux.

L’Equipe reports Sousa is the first choice to replace Ricardo Gomes, who was sacked on Tuesday after defeat to Nantes left Bordeaux 13th in Ligue 1.

The Portuguese is currently out of work after leaving Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian in October and had been linked with replacing Eusebio Di Francesco at Roma.

He played for Juventus, Inter and Parma, winning the Champions League with the Old Lady in 1996, but is arguably better known in Italy for coaching Fiorentina between 2015 and 2017.
