He will watch Riolo Fonseca succeed Theodore on the bench at Marseille

The next day, Sunday evening at the RMC, Daniel Riolo broached the idea that Paulo Fonseca could become OM coach this summer. Our columnist believes the Portuguese boss has the right profile to eventually succeed Igor Tudor.

In the city of Marseille, we no longer hide it. The departure of Marseille coach Igor Theodore at the end of the season is a real possibility. Nothing so far allows us to confirm anything, but the possibility of his departure exists today. And if this is the will of the Croatian technician, Pablo Longoria will have no choice but to start a new cycle very quickly, while big deadlines await OM this summer, especially European ones. Who will be better able to take on the challenge of qualifying OM for the Champions League, with an attractive squad line-up?

“Since we are talking about Fonseca and his desires elsewhere, I think he would be a great coach for OM,” Daniel Riolo estimated in a post, Sunday night on RMC. Apostle of attacking football, the Portuguese technician is on his way to qualifying Lusk for the Europa League. Right behind OM, who was defeated by Lille in the final stage of the tournament, which complicates the task of Marseille in its remote fight with Lens for the place of the Dolphin, behind Paris Saint-Germain.

It’s crucial for me.” Ambitious has everything to satisfy Vélodrome.

“I think he would need extra talent, however,” warns Daniel Riolo. “You take a team like Lille, and I wonder if they don’t have more ballplayers, talent, than OM. Tudor, I’m not sure it was so bad. With this team where There is no mad talent. For if you take Lil, I find that they are rather supplied, with Jonathan David, Capella, Jonathan Bamba…”

Could Paulo Fonseca’s ambition clash with Marseille’s economic context? Last winter, when he was hoping for reinforcements, Paulo Fonseca had to settle for what Olivier Letang had agreed to give him at Lille, that is, not much. The transfer window was the catalyst for tensions between Paulo Fonseca and his boss, to the point of questioning the Portuguese’s future at Mastiffs?

Paulo Fonseca feels good there, he confirmed this to RMC Sport last February. But he is also waiting for the club, which should lose Jonathan David this summer, to show its ambitions should it qualify for C3. If he has to leave, OM won’t win. Fonseca is a gentleman, especially in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Portuguese coach is still sitting on the bench at Lille, and Igor Tudor remains the coach of OM. at this moment.
