MARSEILLE, France (AP) -- Marseille has fired coach Elie Baup and replaced him with sporting director Jose Anigo until the winter break.

Marseille announced the news on its website Saturday after losing 1-0 to Nantes in the French league the day before, when angry fans called for Baup's resignation.

Marseille president Vincent Labrune said "he didn't get the results we expected."

The French club is in fifth place in the league, eight points behind third-place Monaco which has a game in hand.

Marseille has performed poorly in the Champions League, with no points from five matches in the group stage.
