Before Marseille – Reims – Igor Tudor, Pampa Deng, Pablo Longoria …: OM is already under pressure – Eurosport FR

There is no longer a season anywhere, and in Marseille even less. It has happened in recent seasons that the “traditional” November crisis came much earlier, or much later. In 2015, she had pointed to the tip of her nose in August, with the sudden resignation of Marcelo Bielsa. This year since then The sudden departure of Jorge Sampaoli – Follower of El Loco – The outlook is not good.

As they prepare to launch Year Two of the Longoria Era, this Sunday against Reims as part of the first day of Ligue 1, OM is coming off a chaotic preparation on all levels. With Igor Theodor, FC Marseille won only one of its five preparatory matches. It was against a modest team of N2 resident Marignane (4-1).

Theodore is in a hurry

the following ? Heavy defeats against the English third or fourth division, Norwich (3-0) and then Nottingham (2-0), a draw against Betis (1-1) and a last logical loss against Milan (2-0). These findings would have remained anecdotal if they had not shed light on the extent of the work that took place after Sampaoli’s departure. You sleep, their tactical aspirations Pablo Longoria did not stop praising him, he decided to start from scratch with the tactical device on which he built his reputation in Verona.

Paris, towards a perfect transition window?

At the moment, his options did not make it possible to cure the diseases of the Olympians, namely the chronic lack of offensive inspiration. Many recruits and a complete revamp of the defense also affected the block. The transition from possession to a more vertical style won’t happen in a few weeks, but the slope will be up early, starting in September, with the Champions League group stage and Lille and Rennes receptions. “It goes against what was done last yearDimitri Payet told the press on Friday. It’s faster and more vertical“Until then, OM will have to search for certainty, and seek…solutions.

Some excerpts broadcast by the club here and there may have indicated that the former defender has joined the “bear care” coaching class, so he has triumphed in recent years thanks to new management techniques and real closeness to the players, the reality is quite different. “These are new ways for usOlympic Guard Point admitted. We are working hard and need to digest because it was too heavy. “

Longoria is no longer standing on a pedestal

Tensions revealed through a variety of media (the teamAnd the Provence) and barely masked in public – even if it The leader of Marseille tried to belittle her – After the episodes that led to the departure of Mauro Camoranesi or to tensions with Gerson And Guendouzi, that the letter of the new artwork does not print. Putting Bamba Deng, set aside for reasons obscure but appreciated by supporters, made the climate worse.

“OM is doing a transfer window in the Europa League, not the Champions League”

It also weakens the undisputed rind of Pablo Longoria so far. Appointing Tudor is his entirely assumed choice while other coaches have been able to ensure some form of continuity in the market (De Zerbe). But beware of breakage. “Those who are not happy can always come see me in my office and we will find a way to move.‘” Longoria warned at a press conference this week. The leader’s narrow, down-to-earth vision, worthy of praise, no longer obscures the hiccup quite like the breach of contract by Steve Mandanda or Alvaro Gonzalez. In Marseille, all floors are therefore under pressure.
