There is no more season anywhere, and in Marseille even less. In recent seasons, it has happened that the “traditional” November crisis has come much earlier, or much later. In 2015, she had even pointed the tip of her nose in August, with the surprise resignation of Marcelo Bielsa. This year, since the surprise departure of Jorge Sampaoli – disciple of El Loco – the forecasts have not been good. As he prepares to launch Year II of the Longoria era, this Sunday against Reims in the As part of the first day of Ligue 1, OM are coming out of a chaotic preparation at all levels. With Igor Tudor, the Marseille club has won only one of its five preparation matches. It was against the modest team of Marignane (4-1) resident of N2.Ligue 1From nugget to last on the list, OM pushes Dieng towards the exit07/30/2022 At 11:09 p.m. Heavy defeats against third or fourth-tier English teams, Norwich (3-0) then Nottingham (2-0), a draw against Betis (1-1) and a last logical loss against AC Milan ( 2-0). These results would have remained anecdotal if they had not highlighted the extent of the work undertaken after Sampaoli’s departure. Tudor, whose tactical aspirations have never ceased to be praised by Pablo Longoria, has decided to start from scratch with the tactical device on which he built his reputation in Verona. Paris, towards a perfect transfer window? For the moment, his choices failed to cure Olympians’ ills, namely a chronic lack of attacking inspiration. The many recruits and the complete renewal of the defense also affected the block. Going from a possession game to a more vertical style will not happen in a few weeks but the slope will rise very early, from September, with the Champions League group stage and the receptions of Lille and Rennes. “It goes against what was done last year, said Dimitri Payet to the press on Friday. It’s faster, more vertical.” Until then, OM will therefore have to find certainties, and Tudor … solutions. Some excerpts broadcast here and there by the club may have suggested that the ex-defender had joined the caste of “care bear” coaches, so conquering in recent years thanks to new management techniques and a real proximity with the players, The reality is quite different. “These are new methods for us, admitted the Olympian leader. We work hard, we need to digest because it was very heavy.”Longoria is no longer on a pedestalTensions revealed by several media (L’Equipe, La Provence) and barely masked in public – even if the Marseille leader tried to minimize them – after the episodes which led to the departure of Mauro Camoranesi or to the tensions with Gerson and Guendouzi, show that the speech of the new technician does not print not. The situation of Bamba Dieng, put aside for obscure reasons but appreciated by the supporters, has made the climate heavier. undisputed so far. The appointment of Tudor is his fully assumed choice while other coaches capable of ensuring a form of continuity were on the market (De Zerbi). But beware of the fracture. “Those who are not happy can always come see me in my office and we will find a solution for a transfer,” warned Longoria at a press conference this week. The narrow vision on the ground of the leader, commendable and praised, no longer completely obscures hiccups such as breaches of contract by Steve Mandanda or Alvaro Gonzalez.
