The AS newspaper dropped a bomb this Thursday by revealing Jorge Sampaoli’s desires elsewhere because of OM’s difficulties in launching their transfer window.
Jorge Sampaoli is a passionate and volcanic man but also very impatient, if we are to believe the information from the AS newspaper in this second part of the week. And as proof, in its edition of the day, the Spanish media categorically asserts that Jorge Sampaoli has serious doubts about his future at Olympique de Marseille. In question, the difficulties of the Marseille club to launch its transfer window while for the time being, no reinforcement has set foot in Provence except Samuel Gigot, whose arrival from Spartak Moscow (free) had been completed last January. Jorge Sampaoli is calling for heavy Marseille to replace William Saliba and Boubacar Kamara and especially in the hope of passing the group stage of the Champions League.
Sampaoli, doubts about the OM transfer window?
The rumors are logically likely to worry the supporters of Olympique de Marseille even if for the very credible Argentine journalist Veronica Brunati, there is nothing to worry about on the side of Pablo Longoria and Javier Ribalta. Indeed, the South American journalist formally denied the information from the AS newspaper, explaining that Jorge Sampaoli felt very well in Marseille and felt very motivated at the idea of making OM shine in the Champions League. Especially since relations with Pablo Longoria are excellent. A trend confirmed by Le Phocéen, who also reveals that the OM transfer window will experience a very serious boost in the coming days, which should please Jorge Sampaoli and his staff.
Five reinforcements in the coming days at OM?
The Marseille media sends heavy by saying that five players – whose names have not filtered for the moment – will land at Olympique de Marseille in the days to come. Five players, plus substitutes for possible starters (Saliba, Kamara but also Caleta-Car or Luis Henrique) are therefore expected in Marseille in the days to come. “The theory of a departure from Sampaoli therefore does not hold, even if we do not exclude a small pressure as when the Argentinian set his conditions to be competitive in C1” argues Le Phocéen, for whom there is no doubt that Jorge Sampaoli will still be on the bench for Olympique de Marseille next season. And what’s more with a relatively competitive team while in recent days, the Isaak Touré and Justin Kluivert tracks have made progress.
