Sylvinho sacked by Lyon after one win in nine matches

Lyon have announced the dismissal of head coach Sylvinho after a run of one win in nine matches in all competitions.

The Brazilian's first season in charge of the club started in encouraging fashion with respective 3-0 and 6-0 wins over Monaco and Angers in Ligue 1.

However, Lyon have failed to win a league match since, their only victory coming in a surprise 2-0 Champions League defeat of RB Leipzig in Germany on Wednesday.
