Olympique Marseille are a famous Ligue 1 side, for many reasons. They always seem to unearth top talents, who usually move on to bigger, and better things. In recent years they're known for developing world class forward Didier Drogba and famously giving troubled Englishman, Joey Barton, a brief taste of wearing the Marseille soccer jersey. French football quite simply wouldn't be the sane without Marseille. The club will be hoping they can become a dominant force domestically once again, and no doubt their focus would then swiftly turn to European football. There's no doubt that they can cope, though.
