PARIS - After two consecutive losses in the space of four days, the joy in Marseille has given way to uncertainty about whether the team is really up for a title push.Marcelo Bielsas team first saw its eight-match winning streak in the league come to an end with a 1-0 defeat in Lyon before Philipp Hosiners late strike helped Rennes to a 2-1 victory in their League Cup match on Wednesday.Although Bielsa rotated his squad for the match, the Argentine coach acknowledged that his teams disappointing results would lead him to rethink his strategy ahead of Sundays home game against struggling Lens.Another stumble from Marseille could benefit defending champion Paris Saint-Germain, which has cut its deficit to four points and appears to cope well with the absence of injured striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. PSG travels to Lorient on Saturday.Here are some things to know about this weekends games:___IBRAHIMOVIC PLAYING DOWN BALLON DOR CHANCESZlatan Ibrahimovic has been included among the 23 nominees for the FIFA Ballon dOr award but the PSG striker does not believe he has a chance to win it after missing the World Cup.Ibrahimovic, who has been out for more than one month with a heel injury, did not play in Brazil after Sweden failed to qualify. Despite scoring 41 goals in 36 games for his club and leading PSG to the league title last season, the prolific striker is convinced he will be overlooked.I think I enjoyed the best season of my career, said Ibrahimovic, who has never won the award. Many fantastic players have distinguished themselves at the World Cup, that will give them an edge. But as long as I can get results and play at a high level, I can aim for this award.___CISSE CONTEMPLATES RETIREMENTBefore retiring, veteran striker Djibril Cisse has one last objective: scoring four more goals.The 33-year-old Cisse told TV channel LEquipe 21 in an interview to be aired Thursday that his aching body wont allow him to play much longer.Im in pain 24 hours a day, even when Im watching television in the evening. And I will be suffering for the rest of my life unless I undergo hip replacement, said the Bastia striker.The former France international, whose career was marred by serious injuries, has 96 goals in the French league and hopes he will hit the 100-goal milestone before retiring.I can grit my teeth during one season but it wont be possible to keep playing two or three more years, Cisse said. I think this is my last season.___RESURGENT GOURCUFFOnce hailed as the natural heir to Zinedine Zidane, Yoann Gourcuff had lost the habit of being at the centre of attention in recent years.The 28-year-old playmaker, who joined Lyon from Bordeaux in 2010, went through four disappointing seasons, losing his spot in the France squad and regularly missing games with Lyon through injuries.But Gourcuff is now again the talk of the town, having scored three goals in two games as Lyon moved to third place in the standings, just one point behind PSG ahead of Saturdays trip to Nice.Gourcuffs superb strike against Marseille last Sunday ended the league leaders eight-game winning streak and highlighted the former AC Milan players resurgence.It was a relief for Yoann. Big players make the difference in big matches, Lyon coach Hubert Fournier said.___BODMER EXTENDS NICE DEALNice defender Mathieu Bodmer has signed a new two-year deal that will see him stay at the southern club through the 2016-17 season.The experienced Bodmer, a former PSG midfielder who now plays in the heart of Nice defence, is a regular starter in Claude Puels side.Bodmer, who also had stints at Lille, Lyon and Saint-Etienne, has played 315 matches in the first division.

Pierre last November, only to watch St. Pierre leave the UFC octagon with his welterweight title belt and a split-decision victory.Hibernian have appointed Neil Lennon as their new head coach as a replacement for Alan Stubbs after he left for Rotherham. The former Celtic boss has agreed a two-year deal at Easter Road and returns to football after leaving Bolton Wanderers in March.As well as taking the club into the Europa League next season after last months Scottish Cup win, he will be tasked with taking Hibs out of the Championship in their third season at that level. Lennon will be assisted by Garry Parker, who was also his deputy during his time at Parkhead and the Macron Stadium.Lennon told Sky Sports News HQ: What can I offer this club? Hopefully bring a winning mentality. I think Im following on in big shoes from Alan for what he achieved here.The remit is obviously to try and get promotion but thats going to be pretty difficult because of the competition thats in the Championship. Lennon will be expected to bring success to Easter Road after winning three league titles as Celtic boss I know the environment, the culture and the people here. Hibs is a big club with fantastic tradition. Theyve got the monkey off their back with winning the Scottish Cup as well.Its a great club with a great support and we want to get it going again. The budget will be strong for the division but I dont think well be favourites. Its going to be an exciting league.With Dundee United coming down from the Premiership aand Falkirk, who finished ahead of us, weve got overcome those teams along with the likes of Dunfermline, who have good momentum.ddddddddddddLennon previously had four years in charge of Celtic, winning the Premiership three times with two of those successes coming in Rangers absence from the top flight.He also added Scottish Cup wins in 2011 and 2013 to his haul before leaving to pursue a new challenge and eventually ended up at Bolton in October 2014. Lennon replaces Alan Stubbs, who left for Rotherham United last week (pic from @OfficialRUFC) Lennon was the clubs first choice to take Stubbs place from the start of their search, with Dempster and director of football George Craig leading negotiations.Stubbs left for Rotherham last week after Neil Warnock quit the Yorkshire club having saved them from relegation to League One.Lennon added: The chairman (Rod Petrie) took time out to come down and see us and the facilities here are incredible. Ive been really impressed by what Leeanns had to say as well.Its very exciting for me, obviously. Ive got big admiration for the club and have done for a long time. Im looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.
