Bafétimbi Gomis awarded the Marseille captaincy

Rudi Garcia told current loanee from Swansea and French striker Bafétimbi Gomis on Friday night that he had been chosen to become the club’s new captain until the end of the season, according to RMC.

The previous captain had been Lassana Diarra, but the defensive midfielder’s commitment to the club has been questioned in recent months, with many expecting him to leave OM in January as he seeks to find the money to pay the €10m fine that is on his back as a result of a conflict with Lokomotiv Moscow.
