OM sale: Zidane, Saudi Arabia… A crazy scenario is confirmed


Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university course that it was important to evolve in a field that we appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to the dream of my parents, who saw me as a future lawyer, to live from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered mercatos and sports news, trying to inform readers as well as possible.

Don’t count on Adil Rami to put an end to rumors about the potential sale of OM. This Tuesday, the former Marseille defender confirmed that the club could move under the Saudi flag quickly. A speech similar to that of Rolland Courbis, who had even imagined a possible return of Zinédine Zidane to his hometown.

Nothing surprising forRolland Courbis, former coach of the Marseille club. According to him, it is not unreasonable to imagine theOM move under the Saudi flag. The team could begin a new era and attach the services of currently unaffordable profiles, such as that of Zinedine Zidane.

A competent person, originally from Marseille? So it’s true, you can think of me. But I promise you, it won’t be me (laughs). But I am thinking of another Marseillais, from the 15th arrondissement, like me. And his name is Zinedine Zidane” had declared Courbis at
