Rudi Garcia has revealed he turned down the opportunity to replace Slaven Bilic at West Ham in favour of becoming Marseille head coach this week.

Garcia joined the Ligue 1 club on Thursday after his Roma deal was terminated by mutual consent, having left his post in January and remained under contract. 

But the 52-year-old claims the Hammers also showed in an interest in his services, with Bilic in the spotlight following a sluggish start to the Premier League season. 

“Of course [I thought about West Ham’s enquiry],” Garcia told L’Equipe.

“I considered all my options, whether that was the Premier League, LaLiga or the Bundesliga.

“But in the end I picked the club that wanted me most.”
