Patrick Collot sacked as Lille boss; Franck Passi to replace him

Lille will announce the sacking of Patrick Collot as the interim manager, with the Frenchman being offered a new role within the coaching staff of former Marseille interim boss Franck Passi, who will arrive at the Ligue 1 club on Tuesday to take the position with immediate effect, according to RMC.

This is the clearest indication so far that Marcelo Bielsa will be taking over the club in the summer, with Passi having worked as his right-hand man at Marseille within El Loco’s coaching staff.

More undoubtedly to follow on this breaking news story.
