Football – Mercato – OM

While the Argentinian was present at the resumption with the Marseille club, a few hours later, the break was pronounced. A thunderclap which would be explained in particular by the disappointment of Sampaoli about the transfer market. It must be said that he had certain requirements.
Between theOM and Jorge Sampaoli, so it’s over. The Argentinian will have remained on the bench of the Marseille club for a year and a half. And although he managed to lead his team to the Champions League, Sampaoli said please. Indeed, this Friday, theOM formalized his separation from the former Argentine coach. A surprise departure which would be explained in particular by the summer recruitment operated by theOM. So far only Isaac Toure joined the Canebière. However, with a view to the Champions League, Sampaoli showed himself to be much more ambitious and had demanded colossal reinforcements from his leadership.
