Barring a huge turnaround, Igor Tudor will be OM’s new coach. The Croatian coach could well land in Marseille with a little reinforcement from Hellas Verone.
Jorge Sampaoli now gone, the position of coach of Olympique de Marseille should return to Igor Tudor in the hours to come. Very little known in France, the Croatian previously exercised his function on the bench of Hellas Verona in Serie A. A two-year contract with Olympique de Marseille is now close to being signed.
Giovanni Simeone, future OM centre-forward?
Whether the former defender will prove himself to a very high-risk and high-pressure position remains to be seen. To get things off to a good start, the Croatian technician could in any case choose to bring in some reinforcements directly from Hellas Verona. According Transfer marketGiovanni Simeone could also be part of the trip.
According to information from the Italian media, the son of the Atletico Madrid coach is however also followed by Sevilla FC. During the 2021-2022 season, the center-forward distinguished himself with a more than honorable season in Serie A with 17 goals scored and 5 assists delivered in 32 starts.

Two reinforcement midfielders?
Transfer market also mentions the name of Adrien Tameze, a French midfielder who has the advantage of already knowing Ligue 1 since his time at OGC Nice. Finally, a last track is mentioned with the profile of Ivan Ilic. Aged only 20, this young midfielder is coming off a very good season with Hellas Verone.
Very regularly aligned by Igor Tudor, the Serb could also follow the path of his current coach according to Transfer market. For Olympique de Marseille, a little reinforcement would not hurt the midfielder. Despite his undeniable talent, Dimitri Payet may not be able to string together repeated matches in a season that promises to be very busy.
