Olympique de Marseille is in a comfortable positive position on the Ligue 1 podium, thanks in particular to the efficiency of Milik. Only concern, with Sampaoli it gets stuck.
The results of Jorge Sampaoli, at least in Ligue 1, militate in favor of the Argentinian coach of Olympique de Marseille. Now a solid runner-up to PSG, OM took the break this weekend thanks to their victory in Metz. A success that owes a lot to the classy gesture made by Arkadiusz Milik, who came into play in place of Cédric Bakambu a few minutes before. The Polish striker of the Marseille club did not hide it, this situation of super substitute does not delight him, and he has a hard time understanding Sampaoli’s behavior against him. For Benoît Trémoulinas, who played under the orders of the South American coach when he played in Seville, it is clear that the latter lives on his planet and imposes his choices without discussing with his players. At the risk of breaking everything as had been the case with the Andalusian club. For the former French international, the risk is great that this scenario will happen again on the Marseille side, the management of the Arkadiusz Milik case being symbolic of the danger that awaits.
Milik deserves better at OM than what Sampaoli offers him
On the set of Greg’s team, Benoît Trémoulinas explained why he had fears for OM and for Arkadiusz Milik. » Jorge Sampaoli, I knew him for just a year in Seville, and it was always on the edge until the group exploded, because he continued to make his tactical choices which were a little weird, compositions of team where one wonders, defensive players who were placed in offensive lanes. So yes for now, it’s working well, it’s even a paying choice, which he did with Milik. We can’t say anything, since he brings it in and Milik scores and gives victory to OM. But what I regret with Sampaoli is that Milik is a striker, a great striker even, followed by very big clubs, and he needs confidence. He needs to play, to score and there even if he is well, Sampaoli put him back on the bench. I don’t really understand this management. So yes it works, but until when? He must lean on Milik, because it will not go to the end “Said the former left side, visibly not convinced by what he experienced in Seville with Jorge Sampaoli.
