Like other observers, Omar Da Fonseca is not convinced of the merits of the arrival of Jorge Sampaoli.
Nothing now seems to oppose the arrival of Jorge Sampaoli on the bench of theOlympic Marseille. After having reached an agreement with the Argentinian technician on the terms of a contract to last until 2023, the Marseille leaders have in fact reached an agreement with their counterparts from Atletico Mineiro so that he is released from his contract with the Brazilian club.

The former coach of the Albiceleste is now expected in Marseille, where he should land during the weekend. Jorge Sampaoli will still have to wait before sitting on the Marseille bench because due to health restrictions, the Argentinian will be forced on his arrival in isolation for seven days. It will then be time for the native of Santa Fe to respond to the expectations placed on him by the Olympians supporters and to convince the observers, who are often more critical.
He made incomprehensible choices
This is particularly the case of his compatriot Omar Da Fonseca, who was not thrilled by his time at the head of the Albiceleste, concluded with an elimination from the knockout stages of the World Cup in Russia against the Blues. . ” At times he showed his character, he felt strong. He ended up in a submissive situation. He asked Mascherano and Messi what to do. He made incomprehensible choices, he explained in the columns of Provence. In Argentina, nobody considers him a tactician, everyone notes that he is a leader of men, a guy who makes his players obey.“
And to believe him, the former Monegasque is not the only Argentinian not to keep a good memory of his time on the bench of the selection. ” With Argentina he was criticized a lot, I don’t even know if he could come back one day. I remember the headline of a newspaper: “the only man who can dent a Ferrarri” “, He assured not without forgetting his success at the head of Chile, even FC Sevilla.
However, the arrival of Jorge Sampaoli at the head of OM leaves him doubtful. “I find it hard to say if he will bring, or not, to OM”, he confided before pointing the finger at his lack of reference in Europe: “He never really trained abroad.” Marseille should not be bored in any case. “We can consider it particular, original, not at all basic, nor flat. He is not a discreet person. He is often in exaggeration ”, he said, adding: “Sampaoli can be carefree and will take a shot.”
