The coach of OM, Jorge Sampaoli, did not leave only good memories on the side of Santos, his previous club …
Luan Peres at theIF, it’s not official yet but it’s just like. Pablo Longoria, the president of the Marseille club, himself confirmed this at a press conference on Tuesday. A rookie of choice for Jorge Sampaoli, who must not have had too much trouble convincing the 26-year-old defender since he was already playing under his orders at Santos. If such transfers are relatively frequent when a coach changes club, the process goes rather badly in Brazil.

The current assistant coach of the paulista formation, Serginho Chulapa, did not mince his words when mentioning the Marseille technician, guilty in his eyes of having looted Santos from a valuable player. “He is in my opinion the best defender in the country. A spectacular player. I almost cried at home when I learned that this vagabond from Sampaoli had recruited him… ”, he blurted out on a local television, adding that the Argentinian manager is “The one who made Santos sink”.
“Santos got into debt shamefully, he continued. The president and the vice-president are fixing it little by little … Christian Cueva (a Peruvian midfielder recruited in 2019, editor’s note) only stayed two months and asked for 35 million reals (6 million euros). If I found him, I would beat him up. What he did in Santos is despicable. And all because of Sampaoli. The guy (Cueva) comes in, plays three matches and sues. He just wanted to go to a nightclub. “
