Pau lost 13-17 at home to Castres on Sunday to slip to 10th in the table.

The team will be led by Thomas Domingo, Geoffrey Lanne-Petit and Paul Tito in the next game against Worcester in the European Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Godignon joined the club in January 2019 as an assistant to New Zealander Simon Mannix.

When the former All Black left his role three months later, Godignon stepped up to share the responsibility with Manca, who played fullback for the club for three years before graduating to the coaching staff in 2014.

Pau made a good start to the season with three wins and a draw in the first five rounds, but have since lost six on the bounce, including three at home.
