Summer will be hot in Marseille. The files are numerous in Jacques-Henri Eyraud offices, with a transfer window in the background. But before looking at recruitment, the president of OM will have to decide to find a new coach first. Rudi Garcia, although he will have extended during the season with his staff until June 2021, will indeed lead his last game against Montpellier on Friday.

He has also blown Spanish tracks to replace Garcia. Summer will be hot, you have been told!
