Rudi Garcia faces a daunting first assignment as Marseille coach with the struggling French giants traveling to bitter rivals and reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 this weekend.The former Lille and Roma boss has penned a three-year contract at the Stade Velodrome where his task is to resurrect a side that slumped to its worst league finish in 15 years last season. Two wins in their last three outings lifted OM but Garcia, who succeeds Franck Passi, must end a run of 10 successive defeats against PSG to avoid a losing start to his Marseille tenure.His appointment, Marseille's fourth different coach since the start of last season, comes just three days after U.S. tycoon Frank McCourt completed his purchase of the club from Margarita Louis-Dreyfus.
