    in summary
    Ivory Coast parted ways with the seventy year old French coach despite the fact they had a chance of reaching the round of sixteen at the African Cup of Nations.

    Olympique Marseille have replaced Gennaro Gattuso with  the seventy-year old Jean Louis Gasset as their new head coach.

    Gasset who was born on 9th December 1953 in Montpellier is appointed by Marseille as their new manager  despite his dismissal by Ivory Coast during the AFCON competition in January.

    Olympique Marseille sit in the ninth position in French Ligue One with thirty points with a goal difference of five but have failed to win a game since last year in the league despite their only  win against Thionville Lusitanos in Coupe De France in early January this year.

    Gasset has managed various clubs including Bordeaux, St Etienne, and Montpellier his hometown club. He was also an assistant coach with Paris St Germain and France.

    A statement on the club’s official website said: “Olympique de Marseille has announced the appointment of Jean-Louis Gasset as first-team coach.

    “An experienced coach with both club and country, Jean-Louis Gasset has spent over 30 years on the bench in the French league and abroad.

    “His experience as assistant or head coach at Girondins de Bordeaux, St Etienne, Montpellier and PSG has made him one of France’s most experienced coaches, and has seen him win four French Championships, two French Cups and four League Cups.

    “Renowned for his tactical expertise, his ability to interact with players, his ability to mobilise the different groups he has coached and his hard-working culture, the Montpellier native has also had the opportunity to put his skills to good use at international level with the Côte d’Ivoire national team, France and Espanyol.”

    Gasset added: “It’s a huge honour for me to be joining this legendary club, Olympique de Marseille. I can’t wait to start working with this group to prepare for the upcoming fixtures and give the best of ourselves.”

    Earlier on Tuesday, the club has announced that former Italy international Gattuso, who was appointed in September, was leaving his role after a run of six league games without a win.

    A statement said: “Olympique de Marseille announces the end of its collaboration with Gennaro Gattuso.

    Olympique de Marseille would like to extend its special thanks to Gennaro and his entire staff for the unfailing commitment and professionalism they have shown on a daily basis, and wishes them all the best for the future.”

    Olympique Marseille will host Shakhtar Donetsk in Europa League on Thursday this week at their home Orange Vélodrome.
