Back to basics. Former Olympique de Marseille striker Djibril Cissé announced on his social networks that he would now train young people from his former club. “Very proud to be able to help the young OM strikers, from the U16s to the reserve,” he posted. Djibril Cissé notably finds Toifilou Maoulida, also a former player of the club, and now assistant of the national U19s. “I am in apprenticeship so we are not talking about money,” said the former number 9 of OM.
An announcement that made the supporters smile, happy to see former club glories back in charge while former OM president Jacques-Henri Eyraud did not want to see a “fan in a suit” (supporter in costume), within the institution.
