Franck Mcourt’s arrival to the OM as president has provoked a lot of changes.
President Jacques-Henri Eyraud has said: “He was always our priority. He has the ideal profile for this post, he is brilliant and a successful leader.”
Yesterday, Andoni Zubizarreta became the new sports director of Olympique de Marseille. He replaced Gunter Jacob in this position.
Previously, Andoni Zubizarreta was the sport director of Bilbao ( 2001-2004) and Barcelona (2010-2015). He is known for buying Neymar and Alexis Sanchez in Barcelona.
But, he was dismissed from Barcelona because he bought a wounded player Vermaelen and a bad player Douglas Santos.
For the OM, it is an opportunity to have a famous name which will enable them to buy some good players. The goal is to compete with the PSG in the future.
