Remi Garde: Ex-Aston Villa boss named new Montreal Impact manager

Remi Garde: Ex-Aston Villa boss named new Montreal Impact manager”

Montreal Impact have appointed Remi Garde as the club's new head coach and director of player personnel. He took over at Aston Villa in November 2015 with the club sitting last place in the Premier League but exited the subsequent March ahead of the teams's relegation at season's end.

The Frenchman meets two criteria team president Joey Saputo laid out for his new manager - at least five seasons of experience with top-level clubs and having won major trophies. He made six appearances for France from 1990-92.

He started his coaching career as a Lyon assistant and also worked for the team's academy, mentoring players such as Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal), Anthony Martial (Manchester United) and Samuel Umtiti (Barcelona).

Garde, 51, earned plaudits as coach at this home club Olympique Lyonnais, winning the French Cup and Super Cup in 2012.

Mauro Biello, who had coached the Impact since 2015, was sacked after Montreal finished ninth among 11 teams in the Eastern Conference at 11-17-6.

Garde is the fifth coach since the Impact kicked off in MLS in 2012, following Jesse Marsch, Marco Schallibaum, Frank Klopas and Biello.
