Montpellier have confirmed the appointment of Michel Der Zakarian as their new manager after enduring a difficult season in Ligue 1.

La Paillade finished their domestic season in 15th position, only three points above the relegation zone, after losing their last five games of the campaign.

The 54-year-old Der Zakarian has signed with Montpellier after leading Reims to seventh position in the second division this season.

Der Zakarian is a former Montpellier player, having spent 10 years at the club before hanging up his boots in 1997.

The Armenian's first managerial post was at Nantes, where he had two spells. He also led Clermont Foot for three years.
