OM: Jorge Sampaoli’s big mistake

Posted on September 23, 2022 at 03:30 by Thibault Morlain

This summer, the earth shook at OM. Indeed, it was absolutely not planned and yet, Jorge Sampaoli decided to pack his bags, he who still had a year of contract. And if the Argentinian slammed the door, it is largely because he was not satisfied with the recruitment made by Pablo Longoria at this time. The sequel obviously proved him wrong…

This season, theOM thus presents itself with a new trainer. Indeed, it is Igor Tudor who is now in charge on the Canebière. The Croatian came to replace Jorge Sampaoli, which nevertheless remained on an excellent season. Indeed, the Argentinian had finished 2nd in Ligue 1, thus succeeding in qualifying theOM for the Champions League. Finally, Sampaoli will therefore only have remained a year and a half on the Marseille bench. And while Pablo Longoria wanted to build the future with him, things did not go as planned.

Sampaoli wanted recruits

It is also because of this Champions League to play that everything changed for Jorge Sampaoli. Indeed, given the European deadlines that were looming, the Argentinian wanted his OM stand accordingly. His demands on the transfer window were enormous and some had explained that he had demanded the arrivals ofAntoine Griezmann and Renato Sanches. Finally, on resuming training with theOM, Jorge Sampaoli fell from above seeing that only Samuel Gigot and Isaac Tourefar from being experienced, had joined its workforce.

They arrived after his departure from OM

Traced back, Jorge Sampaoli then took the radical decision to leave theOm. Pablo Longoria then went looking Igor Tudor and it was finally following the arrival of the Croatian that everything was unblocked on the transfer window. Indeed, recruits multiply with the arrival of Chancel Mbemba, Jonathan Clauss, Ruben Blanco, Luis Suarez, Nuno Tavares, Jordan Veretout, Alexis Sanchez, Eric Bailly, Issa Kaboré or Amine Harit. In the end, theOM will therefore indeed have been reinforced as a result, as required Jorge Sampaoli. But the latter was already very far away…
