The meeting had been planned for a long time, but, for supporters of Olympique de Marseille, it came at the right time. After the draw, really a draw, against Toulouse (0-0), Sunday at the Vélodrome, the Marseille players were treated to a rant from the supporters, who urged them to “wet their jerseys” or to “break”, a traditional song of times of crisis.
Monday, it was therefore the leaders who took it for their rank, as reported The Team And RMC Sport. If the insipid performances of the team led by Marcelino were obviously mentioned, it was above all the management of the club by the management which was singled out. Thus, among the grievances addressed to the managers are the changes “too numerous players, the flight of executives, cronyism practices or the training conditions of certain teams”, indicates The Team.
So much so that, after five days of Ligue 1 and an elimination during the preliminary round of the Champions League against Panathinaikos, certain OM supporters demanded the resignation of the leaders, starting with Pablo Longoria, the president of the club, and Javier Ribalta, the football director.
