2nd in Ligue 1, OM has great chances of finishing in the Champions League next season. A coherent sports project in the eyes of Eric Di Méco.
While the vast majority of French clubs had to tighten their belts last January, OM, on the other hand, was very active on the transfer market. The management of Olympique de Marseille managed to secure the services of Ruslan Malinovskyi, Azzedine Ounahi and Vitinha for a total amount of around 40 million euros.
This ambitious recruitment should allow OM to secure its second place on the podium in order to qualify for the Champions League for a second consecutive year. And the Marseille club has a great chance of achieving this Goal. Despite the heavy defeat suffered at home against PSG (0-3), and the terrible disappointment against Annecy in the French Cup, OM is still well placed in the championship.
The victory obtained in Reims (2-1) before the international break allowed the Phocéens to relaunch their campaign for Europe. OM occupies the second place in Ligue 1 and is only 7 points behind PSG. The team led by Igor Tudor will have to string together wins in order to finish on the podium at the end of the season.
OM: Eric Di Méco praises Pablo Longoria’s sports project.
After being heavily criticized at the beginning of the season and then praised for his positive results, Igor Tudor arrived at OM to bring about the revolution led by President Pablo Longoria in recent years. Eric Di Méco, for his part, defended the record of the Marseille president, believing that the sports project of Olympique de Marseille is coherent.
“If you finish second twice, it means that the sports project is coherent. You attract players of the caliber of Sanchez, even if you have to be realistic that they are high-level players who need to relaunch their careers. You are afraid of losing your coach at the end of the season, it hasn’t always been like that. After chaotic beginnings, I still think this project is not bad,” he declared on the airwaves of BFM TV.
