Montanier leaves Valenciennes to take charge of Real Sociedad

Philippe Montanier has been named new coach of Real Sociedad.

The Spanish side have agreed to pay €500,000 to buy out the final year of his contract, Valenciennes announced on Saturday.

Montanier told the French club of his intention to leave for Spain after the final game of the season, when their top-flight survival had been guaranteed.

The 46-year-old spent two years at Valenciennes, guiding them to a 10th-placed finish in 2009/10 before coming 12th last season.
