Marseille replace Gattusso with Jean-Louis Gasset

Struggling French giants Marseille have appointed Jean-Louis Gasset as head coach, replacing Gennaro Gattuso, according to Fabrizio Romano. The team has not won a Ligue 1 fixture since mid-December, going two months without a league triumph. Since then, Marseille has managed just one more victory, achieved against lower-division Thionville in a cup clash, and has gone winless in seven games across all competitions.

Gattuso, appointed in late September 2023, led the team for a total of 24 competitive matches, recording 9 wins, 8 draws, and 7 defeats. His successor, 70-year-old Jean-Louis Gasset, was last in charge of the current Africa Cup of Nations champions, Cote d’Ivoire. Interestingly, he was sacked as the manager during the group stage, and the team went on to win the tournament without him.

Jean-Louis Gasset will take charge of Marseille as interim manager until the end of the season. His last club job was a one-season spell with Bordeaux during the 2020/21 campaign, when Gasset led the team to a 12th-place finish.
