Following the departure of Marcelino, Olympique de Marseille has appointed Italian Gennaro Gattuso as coach, the French Ligue 1 club announced on Wednesday.
The 45-year-old Gattuso takes over after Marcelino, after the Spaniard quit the team following a spat with the Marseille fans.
Seven months after starting with the LaLiga team hovering barely above the relegation zone, Gattuso left Valencia in January.
The former Italy midfielder managed Napoli and AC Milan in the past; he will leave the reigning Serie A champions at the end of the 2020–21 campaign.
After two victories, three draws, and a 4-0 loss to Paris St. Germain, Marseille is seventh in Ligue 1.
This season, they were unable to advance to the Champions League.
Before hosting Brighton & Hove Albion in the Europa League on Sunday, they play AS Monaco on Saturday.
