My French is pretty rusty but if I understand it correctly, it looks like he's signed a contract to June 2025. One way or another, I'd be very surprised if he sees it through. Either he'll be a tremendous success and will join a bigger club, or he's sacked within 12 months. Edited to add: his immediate predecessor lasted ten months in the job, including the off-season. He was appointed in January and sacked in November. Looks like Jean-Marc Furlan holds the record for the longest managerial stint at Troyes, with 5 and a half years (June 2010-December 2015) in his second stint (and his first was pretty lengthy, having managed Troyes from May 2004 to June 2007).

Having said that, I think he's done something that not even Ange has accomplished - being named a manager of a club in one of the top five leagues in the world (Ligue Un).
