Beaten on Sunday evening by Monaco (0-1), OM has just taken one point in three games. That weakens Jorge Sampaoli.
The crisis is not far away at Olympique de Marseille. A week after the abysmal draw in Troyes defeated by Monaco, Dimitri Payet’s team-mates are in the doldrums. And in the city of Marseille, a man has been the object of criticism from Marseille’s supporters. This is Jorge Sampaoli, the coach with increasingly contentious choices in Marseille. Until now, President Pablo Longoria has always supported the Argentine coach, both privately and publicly. But according to information from Argentine journalist Luis Fregossi, the Public Prosecution Service staff is beginning to doubt Jorge Sampaoli. And the circle close to Pablo Longoria would seriously consider parting with the former Chile and Argentina coach.
Sampaoli has expelled a paso de ser de su cargo como DT del @OM_Official † Los directentes ya no entienden sus decisiones y desde el seno del plantel le soltaron la mano.

Sampaoli is about to be sacked as Olympique de Marseille coach launches the South American journalist on social networks, before continuing. “The leaders no longer understand his decisions and from the inside it seems that the players have let him down. Sampaoli has lost 22 points at home since the start of the Ligue 1 season.” recalls Luis Fregossi, for whom the departure of Jorge Sampaoli is now clearly mentioned within the management of Olympique de Marseille as we enter the final sprint, both in Ligue 1 and in the Coupe d’Europe. Qualified into the round of 16 of the Europa Conference League, OM will host Basel at the Vélodrome on Thursday evening and the supporters will wait for nothing more than a win to regain some peace of mind for the crucial Ligue 1 games against Brest. … and nice.
Pablo Longoria met OM supporters
Evidence that the crisis is brewing in Marseille was held at the Velodrome on Tuesday evening in an emergency meeting between Pablo Longoria and the main leaders of the supporter groups. So the leaders of the associations let Pablo Longoria know that the atmosphere was about to become “electric” at the Vélodrome for the Nice reception in a week and a half. In addition, the captains of the Marseille stands did not disappoint Pablo Longoria that they no longer understood Jorge Sampaoli’s choices. The Arkadiusz Milik case, for example, is divisive. “We have one of the best strikers in Europe and we are disgusted by him” have essentially made Olympique de Marseille’s supporters fall for their president Pablo Longoria. The cases of Steve Mandanda and Alvaro Gonzalez, totally plastered leaders, were also mentioned.
“We can’t treat an OM legend that way, the club was not fair to Mandanda” regretted the supporters according to RMC, which also reports that the supporters have informed Pablo Longoria that according to them, ” the character “ explosive and charismatic Alvaro Gonzalez is also missing from the field. Finally, the leaders of Marseille’s supporters groups sent an explicit request to Pablo Longoria to let him know that they wanted to meet the players and Jorge Sampaoli to express their impatience. More than ever, the Olympique de Marseille coach and the players are under pressure in Marseille, after three games without a win in Ligue 1 and as the first round of 16 of the Europa Conference League looms against FC Basel at the Orange Vélodrome, Thursday evening at 9 p.m
