Under contract until June 2024, will Igor Tudor continue his mission at Olympique de Marseille at the end of the 2022-2023 season? If it is still too early to decide definitively on its future in the Bouches-du-Rhône, a flagship formation of the Old Continent would be eyeing the successor of the Argentinian Jorge Sampaoli. According to information given by the newspaper Tuttosport, a Serie A club would think of the former manager of Hellas Verona, installed since last summer on the Marseille bench. In the event of the departure of Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus Turin would have views on his profile.

“It would be a shame if he left”
Current runner-up in Ligue 1 for Paris Saint-Germain and in the fight to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League, can Olympique de Marseille lose the 44-year-old manager? Eric Di Meco hopes not. On the waves of RMCthe former Olympian defender – naturally concerned about the news of his ex-employer – does not hide his fears. “If he stays, maybe he will continue next year in the Champions League. He can grow with the club, this generation of players, these leaders. It would be, for me, a pity if he left like that. It would once again be a taste of unfinished business.”
Very dithyrambic in the French championship, Igor Tudor led Olympique de Marseille 38 times in all competitions, for a record of 23 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses. Relegated to seven lengths of the Parisians, the partners of Mattéo Guendouzi will receive this Friday Montpellier in the opening match of the 29th day. Eliminated from the group stage of the Champions League, the Marseillais were pitifully taken out by FC Annecy, resident of Ligue 2, in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, after having offered themselves the scalp of PSG in the eighth of final.
