Lyon has announced the sack of manager, Sylvio Mendes Campos Júnior (Sylvinho) after a run of poor performance.
Lyon has won just one game in nine matches in all competition and the big lost was losing to rivals Saint Etienne 1-0 on Sunday.
Assistant coach Gerald Baticle will take temporary charge of the first team.
Lyon now occupied the 14th position in the Ligue 1 table, only outside the relegation play-off place by virtue of goal-difference.
The Brazilian who was appointed in May started with impressive results of 3-0 and 6-0 wins over Monaco and Angers respectively.
