Evian have dismissed coach Pablo Correa just four games into the new season following a disappointing start to the campaign.
Correa oversaw just one draw from the opening four fixtures and the Evian board have acted following the weekend's 2-0 defeat at Ajaccio.
"The board of Evian Thonon Gaillard FC confirms that Pablo Correa has been relieved of his duties as coach of the team in light of the poor current results," read a statement on the club's official website.
Sporting director Pascal Dupraz will now take over the running of the first team.
Correa, 45, joined Evian in January as the replacement for Bernard Casoni having previously enjoyed a successful nine-year stint in charge of Nancy.
The Uruguayan led the club to an unexpected ninth-placed finish last season but has paid the price for Evian's poor start to the current campaign, which has left them third-bottom of the standings.
After opening with defeats by Bordeaux and Brest, Evian's solitary point under Correa's guidance this term came in a 1-1 draw at home to Lyon.
