Pablo Longoria and Jorge Sampaoli were very close to recruiting a French world champion
Olympique de Marseille was not far from signing the French midfielder Steven Nzonzi.
Amiens, Sevilla, Stoke City, Blackburn, Galatasaray, Rome, Rennes, Steven Nzonzi could have added to his CV, Olympique de Marseille. Indeed, the midfielder who plays in Qatar, in Al-Rayyan since September 2021, has been contacted by the club.
It is moreover the 2018 world champion, himself, who revealed it to our confreres of Cricketbetting10.in:
"My father was in contact with someone from OM, I do not know if it was Sampaoli directly. The season I did in Seville with that coach, was one of the best. I spent three great years there but it's true that the season with Sampaoli was really very good from me as well as the group".
The fans will not blame the Olympic leaders on this issue, especially if they manage to extend Boubacar Kamara.
