Marseille turn to experienced Bracigliano

Olympique de Marseille have signed goalkeeper Gennaro Bracigliano from Ligue 1 rivals AS Nancy-Lorraine ahead of their forthcoming UEFA Champions League campaign.

Ligue 1 runners-up Olympique de Marseille have made AS Nancy-Lorraine goalkeeper Gennaro Bracigliano their fifth signing of the summer as they continue to prepare for the UEFA Champions League group stage.

The 31-year-old Frenchman moves to Les Olympiens after an 11-year stay at Nancy where he made over 200 league appearances having risen through the youth ranks. Bracigliano claimed the Ligue 2 title and goalkeeper of the year award in 2005 as well as the French League Cup in 2006 but was restricted to seven top-flight outings last term by a foot injury.

Marseille coach Didier Deschamps had already secured the services of Morgan Amalfitano, Nicolas N'Koulou, Jérémy Morel and Alou Diarra during the close season.
