Lille have announced the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa as their new coach. The 61-year-old has signed a two-year contract at Stade Pierre-Mauroy and will replace interim boss Franck Passi. Passi took over from Patrick Collot in February but will step aside for Bielsa, with Luis Campos also joining the Ligue 1 club as sporting director. Former Marseille boss Bielsa has been without a club since he controversially resigned as Lazio coach just two days after signing a 12-month contract in July 2016.
A Greek league playoff between Panathinaikos and PAOK was abandoned after PAOK coach Vladan Ivic was hit on the head by a beer can thrown from the stands. Ivic was taken to hospital for treatment after the incident, which followed a 54th-minute brawl involving several players. Play was suspended for more than an hour before the game was eventually abandoned. Panathinaikos were leading 1-0 thanks to a ninth-minute goal from Marcus Berg.
Newly-elected France president Emmanuel Macron is a big football enthusiast. He used to play left-back in his youth and is a self-confessed Olympique Marseille fan. Nowadays, though, a club from his hometown is vying for his attention. Macron was born and raised in Amiens, a city in the northern region of Picardy, and Bernard Joannin -- president of local Amiens SC -- has sent him a club shirt and invited him to visit the crucial game at Reims on the last match day in Ligue 2 on Friday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
