Sampaoli at OM, it burns!

The Argentine coach of Atletico Mineiro, Jorge Sampaoli, would agree with OM.

Presented for several days as the big favorite to the succession of André Villas-Boas on the sidelines of theOlympic Marseille, Jorge Sampaoli should indeed be Olympian, according to information from journalist Auriverde Andersinho Marques.

A two and a half year contract

The latter announced Friday evening that the Argentine technician “will become the coach of Olympique de Marseille after the end of the Brazilian championship”, namely at the end of February. A two-and-a-half-year contract would await the former Sevilla FC coach on the Canebière.

A first against Lyon or Lille?

While awaiting formalization, Nasser Larguet will continue his interim. He will therefore be on the bench this Saturday (5 p.m.), in Nantes. What could also be his last game at the head of the Marseille team since Sampaoli could potentially land for the shock against Lyon, Sunday February 28, or against Lille, March 3.
