Jean-Louis Gasset takes over from Gennaro Gattuso on the Marseille bench. The 70-year-old technician officially succeeds the tempestuous Italian coach.

The setback in Brest on Sunday (1-0), during the 22nd day of Ligue 1, was one too many. Marseillais have already taken the door in the Coupe de France, eliminated on penalties by Rennes. They remain in the running in the Europa League, having been held by Shakhtar (2-2) last Thursday, in Hamburg.
