Olympique de Marseille and Jorge Sampaoli announced their joint decision to end their collaboration. Jorge Sampaoli is the first coach to whom Pablo Longoria entrusted the fate of the first team in February 2021.
Since his first day in Marseille, he has fully invested in the implementation of a philosophy of play and a winning state of mind corresponding to the values of Olympique de Marseille. It is therefore with emotion that the club and Jorge Sampaoli announce their joint decision to end their collaboration. OM would like to sincerely and warmly thank the work of Jorge Sampaoli. After 16 months of collaboration, this work has allowed the club to reach a milestone in the construction of its new sports project and to qualify directly for the UEFA Champions League.
We are satisfied with the path we have taken and the emotions we have experienced together, but after a long reflection, both parties, acting in the interest of the Olympique de Marseille project, have agreed to end this stage. The club will now begin a new cycle that will continue the sports policy implemented by the president Pablo Longoria since his arrival.
Pablo Longoria will speak at a press conference at the club's headquarters at 5pm.''
