Courbis backing Marseille to snap up ex-Man City fullback Sagna

Former Olympique Marseille coach Roland Courbis is backing their move for Bacary Sagna.

Sagna, having come off contract at Manchester City over the summer, retains hope of landing a playing contract this season.

The 34 year-old has been linked with a return to France and Courbis says OM would be an ideal destination.

He told Le Phoceen: "It would be a very good idea, because he can play in all defensive positions. We cross our fingers, but if (Adil) Rami came to have a glitch, with the season he has had, then OM would struggle.

"A player like Sagna could allow us to sleep better in this case."
