Anigo: Plenty interested in Marseille job
Marseille sporting director and interim first-team boss Jose Anigo believes "there are a lot" of high-profile coaches who would be happy to take the job at the Stade Velodrome.
After taking charge of affairs following Elie Baup's sacking in December, Anigo has always insisted he is only a stop-gap measure, and that a well-known coach will replace him on a permanent basis for the start of next season.
The Ligue 1 club have seen a number of potential candidates, such as Borussia Moenchengladbach's Lucien Favre and Mircea Lucescu of Shakhtar Donetsk, rule themselves out, while another, Andre Villas-Boas, took charge at Zenit St Petersburg this week.
Anigo, however, has told RTL that there is no shortage of tacticians willing to take on the role.
"Even though we're not PSG, there are a lot of coaches who want to come to OM," he said, adding that Villas-Boas' decision to go to Russia was no reflection on his own club.
"I think he had a project with Zenit. But don't think OM doesn't interest a big European coach. You'd be mistaken."
Marseille currently sit sixth in the Ligue 1 table and take on Rennes on Saturday.
