Despite the recruitment of Samuel Gigot, Isaak TourĂ© and Chancel Mbemba, Olympique de Marseille’s summer transfer window is far from over. After the defeat conceded in a friendly match against Norwich yesterday (0-3), Igor Tudor expressed his annoyance at the result, but wanted to be reassuring with regard to recruitment.

“The president spoke about recruitment. We are expecting other players. Mbemba? I’m happy. He’s a good player. He did his first training session this morning, he’s happy to be at OM. I’m feel very good here, it’s been almost two weeks. Now we have to complete the group and continue to work well”said the Marseille coach, according to comments relayed by L’Equipe.

The Croatian technician was rightly heard by Pablo Longoria because still according to the sports daily, Steve Mandanda’s successor in goal has been identified.

The Marseille president would have set his sights on the Spanish goalkeeper of Celta Vigo, Ruben Blanco (26), to become the understudy of Pau Lopez. The Galician club would be open to loaning OM de Blanco, under contract until 2027, on condition that they first find a new number 1 goalkeeper. Igor Tudor should therefore not be able to count on his new player for his second friendly match Friday (8 p.m.), against Middlesbrough.

to summarize

After Olympique de Marseille’s defeat against Norwich yesterday (0-3), Igor Tudor said that other recruits would arrive this summer. This is good because Pablo Longoria has identified Steve Mandanda’s successor in goal.
