The situation is tense at OM before the resumption of the season. But Igor Tudor does not tremble in the least, and is even satisfied with the turn of things.
Coach of Olympique de Marseille who arrived to replace Jorge Sampaoli at short notice a month ago, Igor Tudor had a sulphurous start. His methods, the game played, the atmosphere in the locker room and the results in preparation put everyone on edge. The Croatian technician, however, has the firm support of Pablo Longoria, who released the immunity totem for his coach. It might not last if things continue at this pace, knowing that Dimitri Payet and Matteo Guendouzi requested and obtained an appointment with the management and Tudor last Tuesday in order to try to understand in which direction the club was going. This did not result in a serious challenge, or a radical change in behavior, so everyone continued their work.
Two players to close the OM transfer window
To the delight of the Croatian, who according to La Provence, is satisfied with the turn of the summer and in particular the transfer window. Almost all positions are doubled and the arrival of Jordan Veretout literally compensates for the departure of Boubacar Kamara at the start of the summer. The OM coach is obviously not on the same wavelength as his predecessor Jorge Sampaoli, and considers himself to be quite well provided for in terms of his workforce. Even if departures are necessary to reduce the workforce, this should not upset Igor Tudor, who does not count on Balerdi, De La Fuente, Strootman, Amavi or Dieng. On the other hand, if this can allow him to bring in a central defender and a striker (Alexis Sanchez?) moreover, the Marseille coach will believe he has the team that suits him for this season. A satisfactory transfer window in his eyes which will therefore give him no excuse to do well. Quite the opposite of a Jorge Sampaoli totally unhappy with the workforce at his disposal, and who had preferred to slam the door rather than play the season this way.
