Zapping Goal! soccer club OM: the complete record of the Marseillais
No offense to his assistants, Jorge Sampaoli has made no secret of his future at OM: he will be on the bench next season. As he said loud and clear in the post-match press conference against RC Strasbourg (4-0), the Argentinian technician wants to compete in the Champions League.
In this sense, the former Albiceleste coach is even discussing an extension with Pablo Longoria. The subject has been on the table for several weeks. “Sampaoli, who likes the club and the city, is open to this idea, assures L’Équipe. Negotiations have advanced, an agreement is even close on economic issues. It remains to agree on other points, in particular the duration of the contract. A priori, nothing will be completed before the holidays. »
While waiting for the outcome of this case, the OM coach will go on vacation in the middle of the week, to Brazil and surely to Argentina afterwards, to rest before a busy new season. The former Sevillian will have time to study the two profiles submitted by his president to the transfer window: Seko Fofana and Jonathan Clauss. According to RMC Sport, these are OM’s top two priorities this summer.
