It’s a thunderclap in Marseille. As he had implied in recent weeks, Jorge Sampaoli is no longer the coach of OM. This Friday afternoon, the Argentinian technician wrote a letter to Marseille supporters on his Instagram account to justify his departure, while his contract ran until June 2023.My rhythm and my objectives are not the same as those of the leaders. There is nothing wrong with pretending different things. The important thing is to seek excellence and want the best for OM”, said the former Argentina coach.
Arrived in Marseille in the winter of 2021, Jorge Sampaoli reached the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League last season and won second place in Ligue 1, which will allow the Marseille club to play directly in the Champions League. A competition where Olympique de Marseille had not existed in the group stage in 2020-21. With the free departure of Boubacar Kamara, and without William Saliba, who returned to Arsenal and whose purchase price seems inaccessible for OM, Jorge Sampaoli wanted to have guarantees on the summer transfer window. Despite his departure, the Argentinian prefers to remember the good memories of Marseille.

As soon as I arrived in Marseille, I felt at home
“As soon as I arrived in Marseille, I felt at home, as if I had lived there all my life. OM is a passion. Every time I entered the Vélodrome, my heart was beating very, very hard. The last season was amazing. Having been the coach of this club has been a pleasure for me. I was very happy there…. I want to thank Pablo Longoria and his team for trusting me. Thank you to the supporters, because without you, nothing would make sense“, he concluded.
