Published on May 24, 2024 at 4:30 p.m.

Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university career that it was important to evolve in a field that you appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to my parents’ dream, who saw in me a future lawyer, to make a living from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered transfer windows and sports news, trying to keep readers informed as best as possible.

This 2023/2024 season will not go down in the annals of OM. Eighth in the Ligue 1 standings, the Marseille club will not play any European competition next season. For OM followers, Pablo Longoria made a mistake from the start of this exercise by entrusting the reins of the team to Marcelino, who left a few weeks after his appointment.

A season to forget for OM. Eighth at the end of this season, the Marseille club is paying dearly for its mistakes, particularly with regard to the choice of coaches. In total, the Marseille team will have been led by three coaches with very different profiles. Left last September due to the conflictual climate that reigned at the‘OM, Marcelino was replaced by a Gennaro Gattuso without solution. Last February, Pablo Longoria tried to save the furniture by attracting an experienced technician, Jean-Louis Gasset. Without success.

Longoria missed it from the start

Present on the set of Football Club Marseillethe journalists Fabrice Lamperti (Provence) And Mathieu Grégoire (The Team) have dissected this season of‘OM and try to name those responsible for this disappointing season. For the first mentioned, the responsibility falls to Pablo Longoria, who made a big mistake by handing over the reins of the team to Marcelino at the start of the season. Because coveted by the Spanish selection, the current coach of Villarreal took a while to decide. However, theOM had to be competitive, and very quickly to be able to fight against the Panathinaikos hashe third preliminary round of the Champions League.

“This is Longoria’s original mistake”

“This is Longoria’s original mistake. He wanted Marcelino, he was waiting to see if he would opt for the Spanish selection. But what he poorly anticipated was the change in strategy compared to Tudor, the transition to the very minimalist game of Marcelino. Especially Marcelino arrives late while OM must be ready early in the season ” told Lamperti.
