Olympique Marseille’s coach Marcelo Bielsa stands during their French Ligue 1 match against Caen at the Velodrome Stadium in Marseille, France, August 8, 2015.
“I am done with my job here, I’m going back to my home country”.
Bielsa then dismissed rumors he was to coach the Mexican national team, and assured he would return to Argentina.
Apparently Bielsa reached his decision to resign from his post on Wednesday, news that really won’t sit well with fans or players who are watching their club suddenly left scrambling to replace their manager just one match into the season.
“I am sad and frustrated”. This emerged after a meeting he had with both sporting director Philippe Pérez, owner Margarita Louis-Dreyfus and the team’s lawyer.
“After three months of discussions, I could not accept that there were continual changes in the terms of my contract“, he said. Working together requires a minimum level of confidence in each other, that we no longer have.
Does this resignation from Marseille confirm Bielsa as the next El Tri Head Coach? He told the press that he submitted his letter of resignation to the club’s president following the defeat. “He was someone that was important to the club and the team”. Bielsa guided Marseille to a fourth-place finish in Ligue 1 past year.
The only goal of the game arrived in the 27th minute and in spectacular fashion as Andy Delort fired a right-footed piledriver beyond hapless home ‘keeper Steve Mandanda.
Marseille got off to a flying start last season.
New boys Angers secured their first ever league win in Montpellier with a surprise 2-0 victory at the Stade Mosson. Angers celebrated its return among the elite with goals from Abdoul Razzagui Camara and Gilles Sunu.
