Jose Anigo: Could remain in charge until the end of the season

Anigo took the helm at the Stade Velodrome earlier in the month following the dismissal of Elie Baup.

L'OM failed to register a single point in Champions League Group F, losing home and away to Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli.

The nine-times French champions are currently sixth in the top flight, 15 points adrift of leaders Paris St Germain, and defeat to Nantes earlier in month proved to be the last straw for Baup.

Despite making an early exit from Europe and struggling to keep pace in Ligue 1, Labrune believes Anigo is the man to weather the storm.

Furthermore the club president suggested Anigo could feature in the long-term plans at the Stade Velodrome.

Speaking to L'Equipe, he said: "Jose will be present when training sessions resume in January.

"He will go on as long as needed. My short-term priority is restoration of the team, both in minds and on the pitch.

"For such purpose, Jose is the right man in the right place. He is the one who knows the group best as he hired all the players.

"That solution is not incompatible with our long term strategy, set last summer. The current cyclical situation won't change anything."

Marseille host fourth-placed Bordeaux on Sunday with the opportunity to leapfrog their opponents in their final game before the winter break.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
