Who to succeed Igor Tudor on the OM bench? A question that Pablo Longoria will have to answer. Several avenues have already been mentioned here and there. According to Foot Mercato, a name appears “at the very top of the list”, that of a well-known character in Ligue 1. It is about Marcelo Gallardo. Aged 47, the 47-year-old Argentinian technician is free after a seven-and-a-half-year term on the River Plate bench. "If Gallardo's name is at the top of the pile, nothing yet indicates that the demanding Argentine technician will be the future coach of OM", we are assured. Note that Eric Di Meco got wind of the same rumors about the former PSG and Monaco player. "It seems that his agent has been doing a job for some time because he would like to come to Marseille," he said on RMC.
Arrived last summer after an experience at the head of Hellas Verona, Igor Tudor, 45, is leaving after guiding Marseille to third place in the Ligue 1 standings, and therefore qualifying for the preliminary round of C1 . Before the last match of the season, Saturday (9 p.m.), in Ajaccio, during the 38th day of the French championship, he has a record of 27 wins, seven draws and 13 defeats.
