Marseille have confirmed the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas as their next manager on a two-year contract. 

The 41-year-old has been out of football since leaving Chinese Super League champions Shanghai SIPG in November 2017.  

In a statement on the club's official website, Marseille owner Frank McCourt said: “We are delighted to hire a coach whose success is recognised at the highest level in Europe and worldwide. 

“Andre Villas-Boas' philosophy and approach to the game aligns with what we want for OM and will help revitalise our project after a disappointing campaign. 

“Our expectations are still great and we are making the changes necessary to achieve our goals.”
