UF Quick Throw: Didier It Is

It was announced today that Didier Deschamps will be taking over as gaffer for Marseille starting next season on a 2-year contract with the club (oh, look who was right - me).

Didi is the youngest ever captain of a Champions League winner, a feat he accomplished with Marseille in 1993 (after winning Ligue 1 with Marseille in 1991 and 1992). He also won 3 Serie A titles with Juventus, as well as another Champions League title. He is, however, most loved in France due to captaining Les Bleus to the "double" titles of WC 1998 and Euro 2000.

He has previously coached AS Monaco (Champions League final in 2004) and Juventus (leading them back to Serie A).

Wow, NYK! That was a brilliant prediction - you were spot-on with your pick of Deschamps as new gaffer!

Who is the youngest captain of a team who didn't cheat to win the CL?

I have no idea what you are talking about. Marseille are pillars of Ligue 1!
