Marseille coach Albert Emon knows his job is on the line as he prepares his troops for Tuesday´s opening Champions League Group A encounter with Besiktas.

OM have made a sluggish start to the new Ligue 1 campaign, with just one win in eight outings leaving them hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone having been touted as title candidates in pre-season.

A win against Besiktas would go a long way towards easing the early-season jitters at the Cote d´Azur club, and give Emon some breathing space after club president Pape Diouf hinted that he may ring the changes unless there is an upturn in form. Diouf told "Should the moment come that I feel the only way out is to effect changes among the staff, I will do so without seeking anyone´s permission."
