French side Olympique Marseille have approved head coach Villas-Boas resignation and relieved him of his duties at the club immediately after clashes with the club board.
Villas-Boas earlier today at a press conference said he has handed in a resignation letter and said he doesn’t want money from the club or owner, he just wants to leave.
“This protective decision has become inevitable given the recent repetition of actions and attitudes which are seriously damaging to the Marseille Olympic institution and its employees who defend it daily,” the club said in a statement.
“The comments made today at a press conference with regard to Pablo Longoria, director general in charge of football, are unacceptable.
“Its exceptional investment cannot be called into question and was on the contrary welcomed by all during this winter transfer window marked by an unprecedented crisis. Any sanctions will be taken against André Villas-Boas following a disciplinary procedure.”
Villas-Boas has only until the end of the season for his contract to run out but his clashes with the club has reached the limit of both parties after calling out the club’s transfer policy over the signing of Olivier Ntcham who he said he doesn’t want.
