Ghana midfielder Bernard Yao Kumordzi saw his Dijon side relegated from the French Ligue 1 on Sunday night.
The 27-year-old lasted the entire regulation time for Dijon as they crashed to a 5-0 defeat at Stade Rennes with nine men.
Dijon amassed just 36 points from 38 games and finished 19th on the 20-team table.
Kumordzi made 15 appearances for Dijon and scored once since joining them in January from Greek Super League side Panionios.
Elsewhere French-born Ghanaian young defender Jerry Vandam also had sad news as his Caen side failed to beat the drop after the last day of the season.
They recorded a 3-`1 loss at Valenciennes and finished in 18th place.
Vandam, on loan from Lille, made 35 appearances for Caen and scored once.
