Gennaro Gattuso sacked by Marseille

2024/02/19 12:12

Olympique de Marseille have lost patience with manager Gennaro Gattuso according to reports.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that the French side have informed Gattuso and his staff of the decision today.

Gattuso joined Marseille in September 2023 following the departure of coach Marcelino due to disagreements with the club's hierarchy and fans.

The Italian has seen his side progress through the Europa League group stages into the play-offs but Marseille have now won just one of their last nine games in all competitions, a 1-0 win away to fifth-tier US Thionville Lusitanos.

Last weekend was the final straw for Gattuso though, with Marseille losing 1-0 away to ten-men Brest due to Pierre Lees-Melou's late goal.

Jean-Louis Gasset, the man sacked by Ivory Coast midway through the recent Africa Cup of Nations, is said to be in talks with Marseille over becoming the club's next manager.

As a football fan, I am disappointed to hear that Gattuso is being replaced as Marseille's manager. He joined just two years ago and had some success in the Europa League. However, it's been a rough patch lately and I understand the club's decision to make a change. Hopefully the new manager, Gasset, can turn things around for the team.

As a football fan, I am extremely disappointed with Marseille's decision to let go of Gattuso. He may have had a rough start, but he has shown potential and it's unfair to judge him based on a few bad results. I hope the club reconsiders and gives him more time to turn things around.
