PARIS, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Antoine Kombouare has been appointed as Ligue 1 outfit Dijon's head coach, the club announced in a statement on Thursday.
Having replaced Olivier Dall'Oglio, Kombouare will stay until the end of this season, with an option of another year if the team stayed in the top-flight league.
Kombouare, 55, had been the head coach of bottom side Guingamp, before being sacked last November.
Kombouare had spent his playing career in several clubs including Nantes and Paris Saint-Germain. He also coached the French capital club from 2009 to 2011.
Despite a three-match winning streak at the start of the season, Dijon currently sit third from bottom on the table. They had sacked Dall'Oglio at the end of last year.
Kombouare will formally take his duty from Friday. His first match as Dijon's head coach will be against Montpellier on Sunday.
