What’s the news?
Olympique Marseille announced this week that they are parting ways with Igor Tudor. The club has a list of potential candidates, with Gallardo’s name sitting at the top. The Argentine coach is reportedly interested in making the move, especially since he is currently without a club after deciding to leave River Plate.
Gallardo had a glorious career as a footballer, playing for clubs such as AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain. After retiring, he transitioned to coaching and achieved great success. He started at Club Nacional in Uruguay and immediately won the title with the club. In 2014, he signed with River Plate and accumulated several trophies with the team. He won the Copa America twice, the Recopa Sudamericana three times, and the Argentine Cup three times.
Since his departure from River Plate, Gallardo has garnered a strong reputation in Europe and has been linked to various moves. His name has been mentioned in connection with Ajax in the past, and Celta de Vigo showed concrete interest last year. Recently, he was also linked to his former club PSG, which appears to be parting ways with Christophe Galtier.
Marseille will take the next few weeks to consider Tudor’s successor. The French club has several names on their shortlist, including Spanish coach Marcelino, Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano, and Monza’s Raffaele Paladino.
