Press reports announced that new Marseille‘s owner, Frank McCourt will be allocating around 200 million euros to bring new players to the French team. Olympique de Marseille‘s unstable performance was clearly seen yesterday after the club’s defeat against Montpellier.
According to “Province” magazine, this disappointing result was not appreciated by the coach Rudi Garcia who asked the owner to sign a striker and a defender in the next transfer window.
The same source added that the club has a strategy to bring top quality players in the next four seasons to compete again on the European level.
Marseille is the only French team that won the UEFA Champions League in 1993.
