And for good reason, the Portuguese is globally unanimous in the Phocaean city thanks to its frankness, its intelligence and its desire to develop beautiful game despite limited resources. On the side of the fans, we hope that Villas-Boas will manage to hoist OM on the podium, and that he will continue to lead the team next season. Asked by TF1, the former manager of FC Porto did not hide that his desire was also to continue his adventure in Marseille at the end of this season. On the other hand, he closely links his future to that of a certain Andoni Zubizarreta, much less spared by critics.
"OM could be my last club. I have other ambitions in my life. The day I started in football, I wanted to practice for 15 years. With Andoni (editor's note: Zubizarreta, sports director of Olympique de Marseille), we built a relationship. My future is intimately linked to his warned Andre Villas-Boas. Frank McCourt, who has already put pressure on Andoni Zubizarreta before the winter mercato, is therefore warned. If he wants to keep the coach Villas-Boas still several years in Marseille, he will continue to compose with the Spaniard at the head of the sporting direction of the club.
