Jorge Sampaoli will take charge of Atletico Mineiro for the final time on Thursday evening, paving the way for his potential appointment as Olympique de Marseille coach.

On Monday the 60-year-old released a statement saying he would be leaving Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro following Thursday's game against Palmeiras.

The former Chile and Argentina boss, whose only experience as a European club coach was with Sevilla, is the heavy favourite to be named the new OM coach.
