Marseille have appointed former Real Madrid midfielder Michel as coach after the surprise resignation of Marcelo Bielsa following an opening day loss.
The 52-year-old Spaniard, whose real name is Jose Miguel Gonzalez del Campo, won 66 caps for his country.
The French club finished fourth in Ligue 1 last season but have lost their opening two matches 1-0.
Michel won two Greek titles and a Greek Cup at Olympiakos before being sacked earlier this year.
He also managed Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid B, Getafe and Sevilla,
