According to La Provence, a South American agent is continuously offering Chilean manager Jorge Sampaoli to Marseille in order for the 55 year old to take over from Michel at the end of the season.
Sampaoli, who is considered as one of Marcelo Bielsa’s disciples, also made it publically clear that he has an interest in Marseille, in an interview with Argentinian media outlet Vorterix:
“I would like to manage a club like Marseille or Galatasaray, they generate a lot of passion.”
Sampaoli to Marseille? It would certainly be a coup…
