Marseille release veteran defender, Rod Fanni

Ligue 1 high-flyers Marseille have terminated the contract of experienced defender Rod Fanni, La Provence has learned.

The 36-year-old made 28 league appearances last term, but he wasn’t in Rudi Garcia’s plans for the 2017/2018 campaign.

Even though his deal was due to expire in June 2018, Marseille decided to release the player from his contract after several weeks of negotiations with his agents.

This was Fanni’s second spell at Stade Velodrome, as he had initially joined the club from Rennes in January 2011.

Operating as a right-back and centre-back, the defender amassed a total of 158 Ligue 1 appearances during his two stints.
