Ex-Chelsea, Juventus boss Sarri turns down Marseille

Former Chelsea and Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has turned down the chance to replace Andre Villas-Boas at Marseille.

The French club have suspended Villas-Boas and want to replace him immediately.

However, Sky Italia reveals Sarri turned down the club's approach, and the 62-year-old does not want to manage until the start of next season.

Marseille are also being linked to ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre, along with Leonardo Jardim and Ernesto Valverde.

The club sit in 9th place in Ligue 1 after 21 games, and they have played two less than most of the teams above them in the table.
