Franck Passi set to be confirmed as Marseille manager

According to our colleagues at RTL, Franck Passi will be confirmed by Marseille as their manager for the 2016/17 campaign.

Passi, who has held the position of interim manager twice over the course of the 2015/16 season, confirmed his desire to take the job on full time following OM’s Coupe de France final defeat.

In their current situation, Marseille have no capital to spend until a new owner comes in, which the current owner Margarita Louis Dreyfus is hoping will happen before the end of the month.

Therefore, the most logical move appears to be to confirm Passi for the forthcoming campaign so that the club can begin to prepare, with so much uncertainty in other sectors at the moment.
