Villas-Boas suspended and set for Marseille sack following explosive press conference

Yet Villas-Boas earlier said he wanted "nothing from OM, no money". "It's a decision that is not made by me. I really liked it here, you have a very special love for your club, I have learned to love the club in the same way as you and I have always defended it". It was never a player on our list. "I don't want money", said Villas-Boas, who was named boss in 2019.

The report adds that the Frenchman wants to leave, plus there is already interest from West Brom and French clubs for his signature.

"Because of that I have presented my resignation to the board".

"In fact, it was 'is precisely a player that I refused, first let go of AVB".

What's the current situation at Marseille?

However, this season, the club are struggling and have only won once in their last nine games.

They also finished bottom of their Champions League group after winning just one game and losing five, having conceded 13 goals in the process.

Amidst this, the fans have expressed their anger and recently set fire to a training ground building which led to the postponement of the Rennes clash.

"Olympique de Marseille announces the pending disciplinary proceedings of Andre Villas-Boas", the club said in a statement.

The star, on his day, is one of the best players in Scotland - if not the best.

Villas-Boas was pretty much against the decision to sign the Frenchman, but wanting to leave the club for this reason came out of the blue.

Results have dipped this season, however, with Marseille nowhere near their previous form.

Villas-Boas managed Academica and Porto in his native Portugal before moving to the Premier League to replace Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea.

Villas-Boas has overseen a run of four successive defeats in all competitions and Marseille are ninth in Ligue 1. He was sacked in his second season in charge after a 5-0 loss to Liverpool, the club's worst at White Hart Lane in 16 years.
