PARIS, June 18 (AFP) - Former France rugby captain Fabien Galthie will coach Stade Francais for the next three seasons, the Paris rugby club announced on Friday.

The 35-year-old Galthie will take over from South African Nick Mallett who is leaving at the end of the season for personal reasons.

Galthie, who played for Stade Francais for two seasons between 2001 and 2003, retired from the sport following France's loss to England in the World Cup semi-final on November 16 last year in Sydney.
