Zidane, Gallardo, Fonseca… the trends for the OM bench!

With Igor Tudor gone, Olympique de Marseille must find a new coach for next season. The Marseille club, 3rd in Ligue 1, will start its next season very strongly, at the beginning of August, with the play-offs for accession to the Champions League.

Marcelo Gallardo

A name, mentioned in recent days at OM, seems to be moving away from the French club. The Portuguese Paulo Fonseca, stationed at LOSC, is not a priori close to the exit, according to the revelations on Twitter by Mohamed Toubache-Ter. The latter claims that Lille has “the advantage” in the file of the 50-year-old coach, under contract until 2024 with the Mastiffs, 5th in L1.

Like the Spaniard Andoni Iraola, Paulo Fonseca has been mentioned, but the coach should continue the adventure with LOSC.

Gallardo already at work?

Currently, the hottest track leads to Marcelo Gallardo. The 47-year-old Argentinian is free of any contract, after eight seasons at River Plate, where the coach has topped his list. In addition, the former Monegasque and Parisian would already be discussing with an element of the Marseille workforce, namely Alexis Sanchez. According to the revelations of the Chilean media The HoraMarcelo Gallardo would try to convince the striker to extend to OM, in the hope of possibly working with him in the Marseille club next year.

OM are in the fight with AS Monaco for the Argentinian coach.

Zidane’s dream

Finally, journalist Fred Hermel spoke on RMC the possibility of seeing, soon, Zinédine Zidane on the bench of the club of his hometown, Marseille. According to the journalist, the possibility exists, but it is very slim: “Zidane at OM? It will take a big project. Zizou’s problem is that he started with the greatest team in football history. He cannot train less good players. If there is a big project in Marseille with investors to have a PSG type team, why not one day. This is his city”.

A takeover of OM by Saudis has been mentioned in recent days, even if Daniel Riolo, on RMCsaid to believe little, by advancing another name.
