“Me the stadium, I want to sell it because it costs us too much money”, he thus launched during a direct video on Facebook devoted to the finances of Marseille before denouncing the real “Financial mismanagement” that constitutes the Vélodrome, property of the town hall. “I said it when I was in the opposition, he continued. I will do so if I find a buyer, and I will manage in the months and years to find a buyer. The stadium is no longer possible. Niet, finished. 15 million euros from the pocket of the Marseillais for 30 years, it’s over. “
