Gerets plays down Marseille return rumours

Belgian Eric Gerets has played down suggestions he could return to Marseille for a second spell as head coach.

The 59-year-old was a popular figure at the Stade Velodrome during his first stint, which ran from September 2007 to May 2009.

This flame between Marseille and I hasn't got any weaker, but I stop you straight away: today there is nothing concrete between 'OM' and myself.

Nobody at OM or in the name of OM has contacted me. I am under contract with Lekhwiya until June 2015 and my future isn't a worry.
