OM. For general manager Stéphane Tessier, the lights are no longer green

A week without an Olympique match seemed too much, but this season, the entertainment in the most unstable of French clubs is not only played out on the pitch.

Behind the scenes too, the reversals of situations (and jackets) are almost as numerous as the goals of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the white jersey. The Gabonese and his teammates produced a great performance on Thursday evening and have every chance of qualifying for the Europa League final (1-1 against Atalanta in a magnificent atmosphere), but the general director, Stéphane Tessier, other former Stéphanois, should leave the club at the end of the season according to our information.

However, he had become THE new strong man at OM, the one through whom everything happened at La Commanderie, especially since the departure of Pedro Iriondo, former director of strategy.

Appointed general manager with expanded powers in the fall of 2023 (after arriving at the club in March 2022 and having climbed the ranks), Tessier had initiated numerous projects, reorganized things at the administrative level to the point that some saw in him the successor of Pablo Longoria, announced by many internally on his departure. Except that it wasn’t entirely true and that the Spaniard, reinvigorated in recent weeks after having experienced a very delicate period, ended up distancing himself from the one he considered, as recently as January, as “a friend“.
