Ghana winger Ishmael Yartey is without the man who signed him from Benfica after Eric Hely resigned as Sochauxâ€™s manager.
The 48-year-old has called it quit following the sideâ€™s unflattering campaign in the French Lique 1.
The Frenchman was instrumental in bringing the Ghanaian to the Stade Auguste Bonal in a $5 million move from Portuguese side Benfica.
His exit could be a massive blow for Yartey as he will be required to work his way to win the heart of interim boss Benard Genghini.
Sochaux currently lie 14th on the League standings.
