Marseille manager, Andre Villas-Boas, has offered his resignation after revealing the club signed midfielder Olivier Ntcham from Celtic against his wishes on transfer deadline day.
“I want nothing from OM, no money. I just want to leave,” Villas-Boas said at a press conference on Tuesday.
Ntcham, 24, has joined on loan from Celtic until the end of the season.
But Villas-Boas insists he had not been in favour of the deal and knew nothing about it.
“The transfer window closed with the arrival of a new player on deadline day. It was not a decision that was taken by me. I had nothing to do with the decision,” he said.
“I found out this morning when I woke up and looked at the press. I had specifically said no to that player and he was never on our list of targets.
“Because of that, I have handed in my resignation to the board.”
