Oldham appoint former Monaco boss Laurent Banide as new manager


Former Monaco manager Laurent Banide has been appointed as the new Oldham manager. 

The 51-year-old has worked at a number of different clubs in the middle east since he left the principality in 2011. 

He now moves to Boundary Park after former caretaker boss Pete Wild left last month. 

Wild was made interim manager following the departure of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, who only lasted a month before walking away. 

This campaign saw Oldham finish in 14th place in League Two, their lowest placing since 1970. 

Banide will be charged with improving the fortunes at the Latics after a full pre-season.

He brings a lot of experience and I’m looking forward to working alongside him,’ chairman Abdallah Lemsagam said.

‘I believe Laurent is a fantastic coach and is the right man to take this club forward going into the new season.’
