Rudi Garcia says this season has been ‘one of the most complicated’ of his career but he hopes to stay on as Marseille boss.

Les Phoceens are facing the prospect of missing out on European football next season as they sit sixth in Ligue 1 and are seven points adrift of Saint Etienne in fourth with just three games to play.

There has been speculation the club could decide a change in manager is required at the end of the campaign, or Garcia may opt to depart, but the 55-year-old says he isn’t thinking about a Stade Velodrome exit just yet.

‘You can imagine that we are working with the [club’s] leaders on the prospects for next season, we will see if it is with or without a European Cup,’ he told reporters on Friday.

‘I have always worked in clubs where I have been as if I was going to stay there all my career.

‘I prepare my matches in the most professional way possible, as always, after the last three games, it will be time to take stock with the leaders of this difficult season, certainly one of the most complicated of my career.’
