Marcelino, the “abominable” nightmare


By: Manu Tournoux

For his return to the Vélodrome stadium with Villarreal, Marcelino had a terrible evening with a 4-0 defeat against the team he coached at the start of the season.

It was one of the parallel issues of this round of 16 first leg of the Europa League between Olympique de Marseille and Villarreal. A few months after his departure from OM, following a difficult start to the season, Marcelino was back at the Stade Vélodrome, at the head of his new team.

Before the meeting, the statements of the Spanish coach, who had not been kind to the Olympian club when commenting on his visit to the Canebière, had been widely relayed, just to add a little tension to the situation. But the OM players mainly chose to respond on the pitch by inflicting a scathing 4-0 on the “Yellow Submarine”.

Courbis laughs

On the RMC set, watching the match, Rolland Courbis had a lot of fun at the Spanish coach’s setbacks. “ What is this Marcelino party? It’s not even a nightmare, it’s abominable, it’s a scandal! Look at him, the idiot face he has”said the ex-OM coach, letting go a little.

It is clear that Marcelino had a difficult encounter to say the least, because it was the worst possible scenario for him. “The result remains the worst this evening, he commented. Much more than the whistles that were addressed to me. »
