The OM coach has finally chosen to stay, and discussions for an extension are progressing.
“I don’t know if I’ll be there or not next season, I’m not thinking about it at the moment”. Only a few days ago, Jorge Sampaoli clearly left the door open to leaving OM. Something to worry more than one on the side of the southern city, especially when you know the strong and impulsive temperament of the Argentinian, whose stability in a club is not really the watchword.
Will the former Albiceleste coach be there next season? Well the answer should be positive if we rely on daily information The Team this Monday. Jorge Sampaoli will be OM’s coach next season, particularly following the team’s qualification for the Champions League. Pablo Longoria was counting on him no matter what, but it was the Argentinian who had to have the last word.
The extension is progressing
Discussions for the extension of his contract, which expires in 2023, are progressing, and the two men get on particularly well, especially because the Spaniard has always supported the Argentine publicly and internally, even in difficult times, which which was to his liking. But the former Valencia knows that his coach expects a competitive team for next season and the Champions League.
Either way, the two sides are made for each other, and the newspaper tells us that both sides are very close to a deal financially. Very comfortable near Marseille and a fan of the city, Sampaoli therefore intends to continue the adventure for at least another year. Big sigh of relief on the Canebière!
