Marseille also throws Gattuso out the door

After just five months, the French first division team Olympique Marseille is parting ways with coach Gennaro Gattuso.

The club from the southern French port city announced this on Tuesday. The Italian took up the coaching position at the end of September amid a crisis between the club's management and the fans. This crisis has not really been overcome since then, and at the same time the team was unable to score points on the pitch under the leadership of the Italian world champion from 2006. Olympique Marseille is currently in ninth place in the table.

As the sports newspaper “L'Équipe” reported, the former national coach of the Ivory Coast, Jean-Louis Gasset, is to succeed Gattuso (46) for the remainder of the season. The aim will then be to sign Christophe Galtier, who has been coaching Al-Duhail SC in Qatar since October after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
