The coach of Olympique de Marseille spoke on Thursday about the goalkeeper profile he wanted.
Jorge Sampaoli continues to draw the contours of his next team. This Thursday, at a press conference, the goalkeeper position was discussed. A very specific role in the Sampaoli software. “My system requires the goalkeeper to be an additional player on the pitch. Because in modern football, goalkeepers are free players, without pressure from the opponent. He must also communicate well with his defense. But, obviously, the priority is his ability to intervene effectively as a goalkeeper, ”explained the Argentinian technician.

If we could include it in the project, that would be great, ”he concluded.
