The Olympian coach admitted, the day after the draw against Galatasaray, a certain fatigue among his players.
Already tired? This observation may be surprising after only eight days of the French Championship and two of the Europa League. However, this is one of the explanations provided by Jorge Sampaoli to justify the less successful move from OM observed in recent weeks. The coach of the Marseille team brought up the subject after a draw conceded at the Velodrome in front of Galatasaray (0-0).
« There is a lot of fatigue build-up for some players. The team made an effort to try to win yesterday (Thursday), judged the Argentinian this Friday afternoon in a press conference, the day after the second day of the Europa League. We have little time to recover Sunday, it’s a new challenge for the reigning French champion. »

48 hours before the trip to Lille, Sampaoli also mentioned the presence ofAlvaro Gonzalez placeholder image in the starting lineup against the Istanbul club: ” Rotations are a necessity. Alvaro started because Balerdi had played two games in a row. »
We understand better why the former Argentina coach wanted so many players during the last transfer window with the aim of doubling the posts.
