Olympique de Marseille president Pablo Longoria admitted an error of judgment linked to the arrival of Marcelino last summer.

Marseille club president Pablo Longoria has admitted an error in the appointment of Marcelino, the Spanish coach who resigned in September after just two months at the helm of the Marseille team.

“In life, there are always mistakes. I always try to be in the analysis, confided the boss of Ciel et Blanc this Thursday at a press conference. The OM leader explained that the club had underestimated the impact of the change in playing style between that of Marcelino and his predecessor Igor Tudor. I said it in an interview two months ago, one of the most important errors: not the appointment of the coach (Marcelino, editor’s note), but not having analyzed enough the fact of changing coach in relation to the working methodology with Igor Tudor, with individual marking throughout the field. »

Longoria also indicated that last summer’s recruitment would be judged at the end of this 2023-24 financial year. “For recruitment, I have always said the same thing with the different players, we will see at the end of the season. Especially to take stock, when there was instability at the club. »
