Rudi Garcia has stopped as coach of Marseille after two and a half years of leadership at the Ligue 1 club.

At a press conference prior to the final match on his part of the season at home in Montpellier on Friday, and sitting next to President Jacques-Henri Eyraud, Garcia, quoted by France Football, said: "I have decided to leave."

Garcia, 55, who had signed a contract extension in October until the end of the 2020-21 season, added: & I proposed this solution to my president, who accepted it.

& # 39; When I listen to reason, I have to stop this adventure. For the well-being of the project it is better that we divorce now. & # 39;

Only a year ago, Garcia led Marseille to the Europa League final, just because his men were beaten 3-0 by Atletico Madrid.

This season, the club dropped out of the league in the group stage, embarrassedly lost to National 2-side Andrezieux in the Coupe de France, and cannot finish higher than fifth in the league this season, and therefore misses the next European championship.

Eyraud said: & I have a lot of respect for Rudi. He will remain forever as the coach that brought OM to the European final. & # 39;
