Pablo Correa has revealed that he is to leave his post as Nancy boss at the end of the season.
The Uruguayan is under contract with the Ligue 1 outfit until 2012, but feels the club is stagnating under his stewardship.
“I think the club needs something else and I cannot give this because it is difficult to motivate all the time,” he told the club’s official website.
“As I don’t want to see Nancy in trouble, I prefer to leave. As of 30th June I will look for a new club.
“The time has come to move on. When you sign a long-term contract, you know you sit on something you take for granted.
“It would have been easy for me to stay, but I’ve never liked the easy option, I’ve always looked for levers to push the group further.
“Now I’m starting to see gaps at times. And I’m not in a position where I want to sit here in this seat and say things will work anyway, even though I don’t have all the levers to push the squad along.”
Correa, whose side sit 14th at present, offered his resignation last year following a difficult season, but the board turned down his offer.
“It’s a decision I made a while ago and confirmed to (club president) Jacques Rousselot at the start of March,” he said.
“We tried to keep it quiet as long as possible so as not disrupt the squad. But the rumours are out and the president thought it best to speak now.”
