Jorge Sampaoli is the new head coach of Marseille, the club announced. This happened a few hours after the Argentine led Atletico Mineiro for the last time in a match of the Brazilian championship. He left the club with a 2-0 victory over Palmeiras, leaving the team in third place in the final standings with only 3 points from Flamengo.
The 60-year-old coach's contract is until the summer of 2023. Sampaoli replaced Andre Vias-Boas, who left Marseille a few weeks ago.
