Currently in Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille are having a difficult start to the season. According to Rolland Courbis, Pablo Longoria is also responsible.
OM players had their worst start to the season since the McCourt era, with only nine points taken in the first seven days. Although the Ciel et Blanc remain undefeated in Ligue 1 under Marcelino despite poor performances, they have had two consecutive defeats against Paris (4-0) and Monaco (3-2), which has relegated them to the middle of the league. ranking.
Gennaro Gattuso will have to find solutions quickly, because other big matches are looming on the horizon (Brighton, Lyon, Lille and Lens in a month). Asked to speak on the situation of his former club, Rolland Courbis believes that the lack of results at the start of the season for Marseillais can also be due to the recruits made by Pablo Longoria during the summer period.

“I claim not to have enough talent”
« Aubameyang, he has a past, now will he come back? This is a major question markwe don’t know anything about it, asks the French technician on RMC. I wonder if this team is simply lacking in talent… When I look at the summer transfer window and the players recruited, I try to see in which position and with which player we have strengthened compared to last season . If you see Lodi on the coast, and after you leave, you will have more than enough money. I will look with great sympathy at what Gattuso will do, but let’s also look at what is effective and what can be done with it. If you pass a period of 35 years, the trick will last for 35 years..”
Let’s still remind our dear coach Courbis that Pablo Longoria invested 32 million euros on a 23-year-old striker during the winter season. It is true that he too is slow to show that he is capable of carrying OM on the attacking front.
