OM: a tense recovery

The time for recovery has come for Olympique de Marseille. Vice-champion of France and qualified for the Champions League, the Marseille club approaches this 2022/2023 season with a smile, but also a lot of ambitions. The objective is clear: to do as well, or even better, in Ligue 1 and above all to achieve a better Champions League campaign than the disaster of 2020/2021 (5 defeats, 1 victory in the group stage). But while Jorge Sampaoli awaits his group this Wednesday at 4 p.m., the Argentinian does not really show a big smile.

What’s next after this ad

As mentioned several times on our site, El Pelado is stretched by the Olympian transfer window. In Spain, the media even announced that Sampaoli would have threatened to slam the door. Info or simple pressure? The observation made by the Marseille coach is simple: despite the green light recently given by the DNCG, the only reinforcement expected this afternoon at the RLD training center is Samuel Gigot (recruited last winter).

Sampaoli is ‘anxious’

Recently, President Pablo Longoria stepped up to ask his coach for patience. But the latter is still thinking as much. This morning, Provence has also provided an update on this somewhat tense recovery. The newspaper writes that Sampaoli is taken from a “deep concern that continues to grow over the days”. Some of his relatives say so ” anxious “again according to the local daily.

Not satisfied with this recovery despite the efforts of its president, will the Argentinian manage to find serenity? It is true that since the start of the transfer window, he has seen a lot of names pass (Claudinho, Manuel Benson, Hakim Ziyech, Bryan Gil, Luis Muriel, Dominik Szoboszlai, Facundo Medina, William Saliba, Nuno Tavares, André Ferreira, Marcelo) without any of its tracks being yet concretized.
