Pablo Longoria took advantage of Igor Tudor’s presentation press conference to provide an update on OM’s transfer window.
For the moment, the Olympique de Marseille transfer window is quite calm since only Isaak Touré has settled in Provence. In the days to come, other elements could follow such as Riechedly Bazoer or even Francis Coquelin, whose names are mentioned at OM. Faced with the press, Pablo Longoria responded to the impatience of the supporters. And the revelations of the President of Olympian are rather reassuring since Pablo Longoria affirmed that Marseille were going to recruit between five and eight players in order to improve the competitiveness of the workforce at the disposal of Igor Tudor. A necessity when you know that William Saliba and Boubacar Kamara have left and that OM will play in the Champions League next season.
Longoria takes stock of the transfer window
“It is normal that there are profile changes. Kamara was a very particular profile. With Igor’s mentality, it’s normal for both midfielders to be more aggressive. The strategy changes. We said at the last conference, it’s important to raise the level of the team. We want to give continuity to the workforce. We have a competitive team, we replace players. What we want is to improve the workforce. It’s a situation where you have to change between five and eight players. It is renewal. When a coach arrives, you have to change players. You have to put in players who have ambition. All the teams in the world want this” launched Pablo Longoria, for whom the major maneuvers will therefore continue in the coming weeks, with the ambition of once again achieving an important transfer window in Marseille as was the case last year with the arrivals of Guendouzi, Gerson , Under or even Luan Peres. Still, to recruit, OM must also sell in order to keep a balance in its payroll. It is for example in this perspective that Luis Henrique or even Mandanda could leave.
