The 52-year-old Spaniard, whose real name is Jose Miguel Gonzalez del Campo, won 66 caps for his country.

The French club finished fourth in Ligue 1 last season but have lost their opening two matches 1-0.

Michel won two Greek titles and a Greek Cup at Olympiakos before being sacked earlier this year.

He also managed Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid B, Getafe and Sevilla,
