The OM coach would have unveiled 4 requirements to his leaders, who now have their work cut out for them.
We must believe that Jorge Sampaoli is as demanding on the field with his players as behind the scenes with his leaders. The former coach of Chile and Argentina has unveiled 4 requirements to his president and Pablo Longoria finds himself facing immense challenges to satisfy his coach. The latter wants to keep Florian Thauvin, Pol Lirola, Arek Milik and Leonardo Balerdi, according to information from Provence.
The 4 immense demands of Sampaoli
For Balerdi and Lirola, the procedure to follow is clear, but will not spare OM’s cash: it will simply be necessary to pay the purchase options of the two men (we are still talking about 26M €). The Thauvin case is more complicated. The international tricolor at the end of the lease at OM, has several proposals abroad and does not intend to lower his emoluments to stay in Marseille. There remains Milik, the most difficult file of the four. OM will have a problem with Juve who covet the Pole and it appears today that Marseille will have a hard time keeping it.
