We approach the epilogue in the series “Marcelo Bielsa OM”. If no contract has been signed yet, President Vincent Labrune said he was “relatively confident” and announced an “agreement in principle” has been reached with the Argentine technician.
“I’m sorry, I’m not new, said Jose Anigo asked at a press conference about the possible arrival of Marcelo Bielsa after the draw tasteless between Marseille and Lille on Sunday night (0-0). There the president (Vincent Labrune) next. He will speak. I’m talking about the game.
“Fortunately, Vincent Labrune actually had things to say about Marcelo Bielsa. Because there was not much to tell after a desperately dull part, concluded under the whistles Velodrome. In this case, the president of the club recognized that the arrival of Argentine technician of 58 years, that n did not attend the meeting Sunday night, is almost achieved. “There is an agreement in principle, said Vincent Labrune. In mind, we agree with Marcelo Bielsa sport project. This agreement is still subject to the drafting of contracts. But can be viewed as relatively confident that things will be done in the coming days.”
Diego Reyes And Manuel Amoros?
OM president hinted that there were still some issues to be resolved, but our colleagues Provence say it is not a question of money. “The former coach of the Albiceleste and VLB were already agreed on this point when” El Loco “landed in France” there a few weeks, they say. The question is when will be officially inducted Bielsa and composed his future staff. His faithful assistant, Diego Reyes, should be. The name of Manuel Amoros, who played at OM between 1989 and 1993 and during the 1995-96 season, his last before retirement, is also discussed.
Europe Is Still Far
The arrival of Marcelo Bielsa, a reputable technician in Europe and South America, is certainly a big blow for OM and its President. Especially as the club’s finances are far from rosy and that the prospect of a European qualification for next season is anything but certain. Marseille could indeed find five lengths fifth place, the last which offers a place in the Europa League, if Lyon win in Toulouse Wednesday night as part of a game in the 34 th day Ligue 1. Steve Mandanda and company are currently two points behind sixth OL. “I’m not talking about fifth place kicking in Jose Anigo Sunday evening. Touch Today, we try to do the best possible, there are still games to get points. If one is fifth at the end of the season, so much the better, but we will point to the last day.”
Blood And Rigorous
Bielsa will therefore perhaps Ligue 1 and domestic cups to demonstrate his talents, who won his first trophy as a coach in the early 90s, with two titles of champion in Argentina head of Newell’s Old Boys (1991 and 1992), with whom he also reached the final of the Copa Libertadores (1992). Still champion Argentina in 1998, Velez this time, he also led the Athletic Bilbao in the final (lost) of the Europa League and Copa del Rey in 2012. All with passages seen on the benches selections National Argentina (finalist of the Copa America 2004, Olympic champion 2004) and Chile (8th final at the 2010 World Cup). This is a big name Vincent Labrune managed to convince. An experienced coach, and rigorous blood, which is known for the quality of game developed by our teams. The ideal profile.
Anigo “It Losc resembles OM”
“A halt? Lille is still a difficult maneuver very strong team, analyzed Jose Anigo Sunday evening, at a press conference. I am not happy with the result, but at other times they are matches where we would may not be taken point. Lille is a team that wins away matches. We are in a rather unusual context and the team took time to break free. The atmosphere (the whistles of the public), it does not interest me. What interests me is the team. Otherwise, it’s still a stadium with all that it has good and less good, we must live with. Lille is a team tactically well established, with a very strong central axis. They radiate from this area. This Losc resembles Om last season. This is a very realistic team.”
