If he has already said that OM may be the last club of his career (he is under contract until 2021), he also declared to Telefoot this Sunday morning that he linked his future to that of Andoni Zubizarreta. "We built a relationship and I would like it to stay. His future is intimately linked to my future. " This is a strong statement because both men have known each other for a long time. The Spaniard had even already admitted that he had thought of the Portuguese as the leader of Barca at the time when he was officiating in Catalonia.
It is also a little pressure shot at the direction of OM. For several weeks, the future of the Marseille sports director is dotted. Guilty of failing to complete his mercato mission this summer, Zubizarreta knows he is being discussed internally. The owner, Frank McCourt, does not give him as much credit as he did when he arrived. Discussions were even started with the Spaniard at the end of September to organize his departure but it is clear that the former goalkeeper is still present on the Canebiere.
