Marseille made a mockery of Lille's formidable home form with a 4-0 mauling at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Lille had won their last five home games and had only suffered three league defeats in front of their own fans in almost 18 months, but rampant Marseille ran out big winners.

Andre-Pierre Gignac opened the scoring after just two minutes and further goals Rod Fanni, Romain Alessandrini and Andre Ayew saw Lille suffer their biggest home loss in any competition since 1997.

Marseille, who have now won...

Rene Girard committed to stay as Lille manager

Rene Girard says he wants to remain as Lille boss, contrary to reports.

Lille boss Rene Girard insists he is not "worn out" and intends to persevere with the Ligue 1 club.

Reports in France have suggested the 61-year-old was set to leave the Stade Pierre-Mauroy at the end of a disappointing season which, with only two games remaining, offers only a sixth-placed finish at best.

But at his press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Marseille, Girard stressed he remains in charge following talks with chairman Michel Seydoux.

He said: "I've met with the president,...
