Pablo Longoria did not take long to ratify the succession of Jorge Sampaoli. The day after the sudden departure of the tempestuous Argentine coach, the president of OM completed the arrival of his replacement on the Marseille bench. As we revealed on Friday, his priority was the Croatian Igor Tudor and it is this file that will succeed. According to information from La Provence, which we are able to confirm, the two parties have agreed on a two-year contract and the technician is expected at the Commanderie on Monday. He should then meet his group and perhaps be introduced to the press. Tudor ninth coach of OM over the last ten years The former defender of Juventus Turin (44) left Hellas Verona at the end of the season, after winning 9th place in Serie A with an attractive style of play. His profile was preferred by Longoria to those of Marcelino, with whom he had collaborated in Valencia, or Roberto de Zerbi, the coach of Chakthior Donetsk. Tudor began his career as head coach at Hajduk Split in 2013. Since then, he has worked for PAOK Salonika, Karabükspor, Galatasaray, Udinese, as well as Juventus Turin as an assistant defense specialist. He will be OM’s ninth coach since the departure of Didier Deschamps ten years ago, not counting the interims.
