Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Mar­seille has ap­pointed An­doni Zu­bizarreta as sport­ing di­rec­tor, the sec­ond ma­jor change since Amer­i­can owner Frank McCourt bought the club last week. Zu­bizarreta, a for­mer goal­keeper, re­places Gunter Ja­cob, who left by mu­tual con­sent on Wed­nes­day — just three months after be­ing hired. Last week, Rudi Gar­cia re­placed Frank Passi as coach, three days after Mar­seille was bought by McCourt — the for­mer owner of base­ball’s Los An­ge­les Dodgers. The 55-year-old Zu­bizarreta played more than 400 games for Barcelona, win­ning the Eu­ro­pean Cup in 1992 and five Span­ish ti­tles. He played 126 times for Spain. He was Barcelona’s sport­ing di­rec­tor from July 2010 un­til he was fired in Jan­uary 2015. He held a sim­i­lar po­si­tion at Span­ish club Ath­letic Bil­bao from 2001-04.
