year following Marcelo Bielsa's departure, will be replaced by deputy coach
Franck Passi until the end of the season.

Marseille, the only French club to win the Champions League,
is winless in 10 league games. With four matches remaining, the club has yet to
secure its place in the top division for next season and has recently been put
up for sale by owner Margarita Louis-Dreyfus.
Marseille said without elaborating that it took the decision
to suspend Michel with immediate effect because of his "behavior ...,
especially over the past three weeks."
