After Gerson, it was Mattéo Guendouzi’s turn to make Igor Tudor understand that he did not approve of his methods.
Definitely, Igor Tudor has a lot of trouble getting respect at Olympique de Marseille. Arrived at the club this summer to replace Jorge Sampaoli, the Croatian technician does not stop having a fight with his proteges. After the one lived with Gerson, he had a clash with Mattéo Guendouzi. It was in the middle of the friendly against AC Milan last Sunday.
According to information disclosed by The Team, the French international therefore had a heated argument with his coach. Not much has filtered out about the reason for this confusion, but the finding is that the former Gunner was immediately sanctioned. He did not reappear on the pitch for the second half.
Guendouzi disavowed by Longoria
Known to be very close to Sampaoli, has Guendouzi said out loud to Tudor what everyone thinks quietly in the Olympian locker room, namely that the methods imposed by the new staff are considered too rigid? It’s a possibility, but the finding is that the player did not receive the support he hoped for following this dispute with the coach. On the contrary, it was disavowed by its president.
Pablo Longoria came to speak in front of the rest of the team to affirm that he was fully behind Tudor. He also let players know that the door was open for disgruntled elements who wanted to leave by the end of the transfer window. An offensive speech and which seems to have borne fruit. The comments made by Dimitri Payet at a press conference on Friday suggest that everyone has fallen into line, and put their moods aside. Tudor, meanwhile, kept quiet about locker room secrets and recent events, claiming it was “private.”
