BRUSSELS (AP) — Standard Liege named Philippe Montanier as its new coach on Wednesday, replacing Michel Preud’homme.
The 55-year-old Montanier, a former goalkeeper like Preud’homme, previously coached in France and Spain. He led Real Sociedad to a fourth-place finish in La Liga in 2013.
Financial terms of the deal and the length of Montanier’s contract were not disclosed.
Preud’homme, a product of Standard’s youth system, will stay at the club as vice-president.
