Tudor’s message to supporters

Relegated to five points from RC Lens two days from the end, Olympique de Marseille will certainly have to settle for third place in Ligue 1 at the end of the 2022-2023 financial year.

Igor Tudor OM Olympique de Marseille Marseille

Despite one of the best records in its history (73 points after 36 days), OM will not be among the top two in the French championship this season. To go higher, Igor Tudor’s men should undoubtedly have better managed direct confrontations with the Top 5 (two defeats against Lens and Paris), but also home matches, in which the Olympians lost no less than 20 points during the year.

If OM are only fifth in terms of home result, it is certainly not because of their fans, who have played their role as the twelfth man throughout the season. Indeed, the Vélodrome stadium was full during all the home matches. A fervor that Igor Tudor wanted to greet at a press conference on Thursday.

“Marseille is a unique city, with very strong emotions in this stadium”

I felt this energy that we have as an OM coach, whether at home and even on the road.relates the former coach of Hellas Verona. Marseille is a unique city, with very strong emotions in this stadium, it’s something very beautiful for me to have experienced that. Players who come to OM must have broad shoulders and a strong personality to be able to play there, because the weight can be heavy. We have offered great emotions to the supporters this season, the players have given everything, but we will certainly finish 3rd.

A third place which will inevitably complicate the task of the Olympian leaders, as confided by the Croatian technician, who will most certainly be on the bench for OM next season: “It is certain that if we finish 3rd, that will bring constraints, because we know that certain players recruited come knowing that the club is playing in the Champions League. But we will not be the only club in this situation.
