Gasset, total fire

In just three matches on the OM bench, Jean-Louis Gasset seems to have dispelled almost all the doubts surrounding his arrival.

On February 20, Jean-Louis Gasset became the coach of Olympique de Marseille, replacing Gennaro Gattuso. Since then, the Marseille club has managed to extricate itself from the crisis in which it was stuck, thanks to qualification for the round of 16 of the Europa League and two large victories in Ligue 1, against Montpellier and Clermont. Before his debut on the Olympian bench, many sports consultants were skeptical about his appointment.

The tide quickly turned. “I think Jean-Louis Gasset was very intelligentjudged Rolland Courbis on the airwaves of RMC. If you make the comparison, between the coach of Paris Saint-Germain whose favorite proverb is why keep it simple when you can make it complicated. Jean-Louis is why make it complicated when you can make it simple. Well I’m going to put my 3 center backs and the pistons, since it’s still a duo of pistons who are perhaps among the 3 best in our championship. »

Doubts already evaporated?

Same story with Kevin Diaz. “There were doubts, which was still legitimate, after his completely failed CAN with Ivory Coast, but it is clear that he is doing an excellent job in his first weeks at OM,” underlines the former attacking midfielder, who played almost his entire career in Ligue 2.

Be careful not to rejoice too quickly. In Marseille, everything can happen very quickly, in one direction or another. The upcoming double confrontation, against Villarreal in the round of 16 of the Europa League, will be a real indicator of the level of play of the Marseille team.
