Marseille has made the decision to let go of their head coach Gennaro Gattuso after he led the team for only 24 matches. Gattuso, who has previously managed clubs like AC Milan, Valencia, and Napoli, took the reins at the Orange Velodrome last September. However, during his tenure, Marseille only secured nine victories in the past five months.

The team's recent 1-0 defeat against Brest in a crucial Ligue 1 match has further compounded their woes, leaving Marseille sitting at ninth place in the league table. This marks a significant drop from their position under former coach Marcelino, who left abruptly with the team in contention for Champions League qualification.

With Marseille now trailing by nine points behind the top four teams and facing a six-point deficit to secure a spot in the Europa Conference League, Gattuso's contract, which was set to expire in the summer, has been terminated as anticipated. Marseille issued a brief statement regarding the decision.

"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."

Jean-Louis Gasset, the former manager of the Ivory Coast national team, is poised to step into the role as Marseille's new coach for the rest of the season. Gasset, who was dismissed by the Elephants during the Africa Cup of Nations, is anticipated to lead Marseille starting from their upcoming Europa League playoff second leg against Shakhtar Donetsk on Thursday.

In the previous match against Shakhtar Donetsk, Marseille drew 2-2, setting the stage for Gasset's potential debut with Les Olympiens.
