Deschamps to stay at Marseille

Didier Deschamps will see out the final year of his contract as coach of Marseille, according to a senior club official.

There had been speculation that Deschamps, who captained France to World Cup glory in 1998, would leave the Provencale club this summer.

However, the chairman of the club's supervisory board Vincent Labrune told L'Equipe: ''I can confirm that Didier Deschamps will stay with OM next season.''

Deschamps signed an extension through to 2012 a year ago, at a time when he was being strongly linked with the Liverpool job.

Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier said: ''I have been telling you this for a month! I knew he would respect his contract. It is believed the grass is always greener elsewhere, but he is very happy at Marseille. We have been focused on next season for a long time.''

Deschamps had been linked with the coaching job at Roma, although Barcelona B coach Luis Enrique has now confirmed he is in discussions to succeed Vincenzo Montella at the Italian club.
