OM: Tensions between Camoranesi and Tudor? Feeling of vagueness among the players?

Igor Tudor had himself announced him as his right arm. Mauro Camoranesi left Marseille explaining to the team that his departure was planned from the start. Moreover, the Croatian coach was able to recover two assistants: Hari Vukas and Mario Rotondale. For the moment, OM has not made these changes official. However, the club told several media that everything was under control.
Like a smell of uncertainty?
However, the newspaper l’Equipe reports that “Relations between Tudor and Camoranesi were quickly described as tense, under the eyes of players sometimes taken aback by the way of speaking of the first to the second. Camoranesi, renowned for his whole character, preferred to leave without making a fuss, determined to find a bench as coach n°1. » The sports daily specifies that the management wants to be reassuring but that the players are asking questions following these internal changes, the modifications of the staff, the training methods and the recruitment which is skating…

Mercato OM: What RC Lens is asking for Jonathan Clauss!
For several months, the name of Jonathan Clauss has been mentioned among the tracks of Olympique de Marseille. According to La Marseillaise, the right side is valued at 15 million euros by RC Lens.
Olympique de Marseille has been following the evolution of Jonthan Clauss for several months now. The right side of RC Lens has been very successful again this season and has caught the eye of the Marseille management. Having become a French international at the very end of the season, he had offers from several clubs.
RC Lens wants €15m for Clauss
Long announced about leaving for Chelsea or Atletico Madrid, he would certainly think more of going to a club where he will be sure to play so as not to miss the boat for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with the Blues.

According to information from La Marseille, OM pushed hard to recruit him. An offer of 10 million euros would have been transmitted, refused until then. 15 million euros would be the sum claimed by RC Lens in order to let go of its right piston… To be seen if OM will succeed in reaching an agreement with the club from the North.
“I completely agree, there is another price for Olympique de Marseille, but there is also another element. The attractiveness of OM, today, seems to me to have dropped a little in the minds of the players. Today, the difficulty, for example if we come back to Jonathan Clauss, I think that there are maybe 10 years back Jonathan Clauss he comes on hands at Olympique de Marseille. There, we have to fight 15 million, 20 million. How many players, Dries Mertens who apparently wants to stay in Naples which raises the stakes a bit, I have the impression that our attractiveness, it has gone down a bit in the minds of the players. So, it’s natural, it’s also due to a lack of regular European competition, coach movements too often, there are plenty of reasons. So, if I were once again in the sports management of Olympique de Marseille, I would think about how I become attractive independently of the financial aspect, how I become attractive to make a Jonathan Clauss say “I want to go to the World Cup, I want to be in the France team, Olympique de Marseille seems to me to be the ideal club to do that”. So more than replacing Payet I would reflect on notions like that. » Cyril Astier Source: Football Club Marseille
[Info FCM] Transfer market: OM contacted Tiémoué Bakayoko, but…
According to our information, Olympique de Marseille has made contact with the entourage of Tiémoué Bakayoko…. The player’s entourage, however, has made it known that he has too strong an attachment to PSG.
For several weeks, the name of Tiémoué Bakayoko has been coming up with insistence in the Italian media… On loan from Chelsea to AC Milan, the former AS Monaco player has still not found a base for next season.
Bakayoko (too) attached to PSG
According to our information, Olympique de Marseille has tried an approach to recover Bakayoko in order to replace Boubacar Kamara who left a void in the position of defensive midfielder. The French international (1 selection) was part of the Monegasque team that won the title of Champion of France in 2017.

The player’s entourage, however, makes it known that Tiémoué Bakayoko has a certain attachment to PSG. Born in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, he has repeatedly claimed in the media that he has been a supporter of the capital club since he was a child. An arrival at Olympique de Marseille seems to be off to a bad start while his profile seemed to fit Igor Tudor’s system.
I think we need to sign 5-8 players — Longoria
“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play, is not necessarily so in another. Last year, we started on profiles to have possession in the middle of the field and we had in particular Boubacar Kamara who had this role of central midfielder. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, an ability to occupy space. The strategy will therefore change on certain positions. As we said at the last press conference, the objective is to increase the quality of the squad, while giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we have to sign 5 to 8 players. During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I have always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to the identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You always have to meet the expectations of a new coach since he is the one who will develop the players. » Pablo Longoria Press conference (05/07/2022).
