OM: The away jersey is officially presented by Puma

The new away jersey thus honors Marseille and its inhabitants, through which the whole city gathers to carry the Olympians.

Pair it with navy blue shorts and socks.

Mercato OM: The three reasons that prevent Fofana from joining Marseille!

Seko Fofana is not ready to join OM. The Ivorian who is already holding the shoulders of Tudor is not on good terms with the Marseille coach, which will prevent the transfer, according to Sébastien Denis, journalist. Footmarket.

While the rumors reported a contractual agreement between the Lensois player and Olympique de Marseille, in recent days, the editor-in-chief of Footmercato revealed that Seko Fofana is ultimately not keen on signing for Marseille. In addition to the financial difficulties of OM in this case, the player who has already developed under the orders of Tudor during his time at Udinese, will not be associated with the successor of Jorge Sampaoli. Because of this, it was almost impossible for him to reach Canebière.

Fofana is not a fan of Tudor and is too expensive (salary and transfer)!

The file in any case is complicated financially as long as the OM is not sold. In fact, the Ivorian is estimated between 25 and 30 million euros by RC Lens, an amount that the Olympian leaders cannot pay at the moment. The Lensois midfielder, author of a remarkable season, has no shortage of suitors. But Fofana is still under contract until 2024, not forcing his club to sell him this summer.

Ribalta will take care of sales – M.Grégoire

“Pablo Longoria considers Javier Ribalta one of his references in football, he said in an interview in Provence in December 2020. A reference with Fabio Paratici is the former sports director of Juventus, now at Tottenham. Ribalta is his friend, I think he surrounds himself, he improves his close guard, I think Ribalta will take care of sales especially. We see that he is already active in the file of Luis Henrique in Torino with his Italian network, because we need to get out of the players, I think he will get Longoria out of some tasks but after the profile we actually have something a little similar, focused on Longoria, but maybe Longoria thinks he has a lot to do as president, he doesn’t like that, interviews, meetings with Benoît Payan, rent is not his favorite place. first Longoria that Ribalta can return to the heart of the work like the architecture of deals, things like that. Personally I think it’s modern football. I compare Longoria to Luis Campos (technical director of PSG) and Ribalta is a bit like that too, they have qualities and faults. Their qualities are that they sometimes bet on a player with an explosion, on a very good talent, besides that, they are managers of the new generation who work in many orders, who always have same agents with commissions, this is about Campos in Lille, we saw it with the transfer of Victor Osimhen where there are things that are not well explained. In my opinion, there are good and bad sides, I won’t judge that, I’m just saying it’s equivalent to modern football. But, whether it’s Longoria or Ribalta, making the transfer window, it’s great, they’re specialists but they have good and bad parts. » Mathieu Gregoire – Source: Marseille Football Club (06/27/2022)
