Weakened two weeks ago, Igor Tudor saved his place at OM with crucial victories against OL and Monaco before the World Cup.
The black series of Olympique de Marseille in Ligue 1 and the elimination of all European competitions at the last minute against Tottenham could have sounded the death knell for the adventure of Igor Tudor at OM. But against all odds, the Croatian coach of Marseille reversed a badly started situation for him and for his team by beating Lyon then Monaco before the World Cup. Two capital successes for Olympique de Marseille, which remains fourth just one point behind third place occupied by Rennes and six behind Lens. In a position of strength after these two important victories, Igor Tudor will now scrutinize with great attention the transfer window that Pablo Longoria will achieve in January. And the OM coach has some well-defined requirements according to Calcio Mercato.
Igor Tudor wants two recruits at OM this winter
The media understands that Igor Tudor is expecting two recruits at Olympique de Marseille during the next winter transfer window: a central defender to compensate for the too many absences of Eric Bailly as well as a center forward to back Alexis Sanchez from t a notch, a necessary change so that the Chilean is less lonely at the forefront of the OM attack. With the departure of Gerson to Flamengo, which will bring fifteen million euros to the Marseille club, reinforcements are possible. But while Marseille will not play in the European Cup during the second half of the season, there is no doubt that Pablo Longoria will not want to overload the workforce, whether for sporting reasons or financial reasons. In the departures department, the situation of Pape Gueye, who entered at the end of the match in Monaco, will be closely observed because recent information suggested that the Senegalese would not be retained in the event of a good offer this winter.
