According to information from RMC Sport, the National Management Control Department (DNCG), satisfied with the exchanges with OM and the additional documents provided by the club, has decided to lift the suspension recently pronounced against the Olympian club. Frank McCourt once again provided the necessary financial guarantees, which counted a lot in the lifting of the sanctions. OM therefore no longer has its wage bill regulated and no restrictive measures have been taken against the Marseille club.
A transfer window “ambitious but without overbidding”
According to our information, OM wanted to prove to the DNCG that the club was in a virtuous circle and that it was aiming for balance next season. This will go through a transfer window “ambitious but without overbidding”, confides an Olympian source. Marseille, which still needs to sell a few players, and who wants to continue to part with some big salaries (including the unwanted Strootman, Radonjic, Amavi and Alvaro), will still be able to recruit with more freedom. A relief for the club and for Marseille supporters.
The financial policeman of French football had carried out a “re-examination” of the financial situation of the clubs before the start of the 2022-2023 season on May 31. It was also OM who had asked the DNCG for additional time to provide as many documents and concrete elements as possible to demonstrate that the club’s financial situation is improving.
The body had also pronounced a reprieve with regard to LOSC which was, like OM, “awaiting additional elements”. The Mastiffs had received the green light from the DNCG on June 14.
Second in the last Ligue 1 season, OM are directly qualified for the group stage of the next Champions League. Major players like Bouba Kamara and William Saliba have already left and appear difficult to replace, especially since some files already leave regrets, such as that of the Belgian Axel Witsel, whom Jorge Sampaoli had hoped to recover but who preferred to sign at Atletico.
