Author of irregular performances this season, Steve Mandanda is approaching the end of his career and talks about his future.
AT the Olympique de Marseille since 2007 – with a cut in the 2026-2017 season – Steve mandanda is the most capped player in club history (586 matches played). Under contract until 2024, the end of the 36-year-old goalkeeper’s career seems to be taking shape at OM, with a retraining as the key. In the magazine Eleven World, the 2010 French champion spoke of his future within the club: “ I see my future inevitably here, in Marseille, because I learned everything here, won everything, lived everything. So I see him at the club. In what role? How? ‘Or’ What ? When? I do not know yet. What is certain is that I cannot imagine myself anywhere other than here. And yes, I am thinking of staying in football. I do not know if I will want to be a goalkeeper coach, a youth coach, to be in the office for administrative or sports. All of these things are still unknown to me in quotes. I want to touch everything before I choose a path “.

Voted best goalkeeper of Ligue 1 year in 2008, 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2018, Steve Mandanda is on the decline. His performances this season are sometimes disappointing and could push OM to look for their successor. According to Turkish media, Olympian leaders have targeted the youngster Ersin Destanoglu (22 years old) from Besiktas.
