Sao Paulo, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Feb, 2021 ) :Jorge Sampaoli quit Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro Monday in a letter released by his adviser, amid speculation that he is set to become the new Marseille coach.
"I have come to the end. This Thursday will be the last match," former Argentina coach Sampaoli wrote in the five-paragraph missive bringing an end to his one-year relationship with the team from Belo Horizonte.
Press reports have suggested the former Argentina and Chile coach could be appointed by Marseille to replace Andre Villas-Boas, suspended following comments made about the signing of a player he said he had not wanted.
Sampaoli had led Atletico to 25 victories in 44 games played.
Already qualified for the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, they will on Thursday play Palmeiras.
