A few weeks after criticizing the French coaches, Pablo Longoria continues to crystallize resentment in Ligue 1. The Marseille president received “nice” projections from Raymond Domenech and Thierry Laurey, this Friday after OM-Strasbourg (1- 1).
Having been removed from the job of coach of FC Nantes, does not prevent him from being an assiduous follower of Ligue 1 and its news. Probably in front of his television screen this Friday evening, Raymond Domenech witnessed the poor performance of OM, held in check at home by Strasbourg (1-1) and very poorly embarked on his quest for Europe three days before term.
But more than the Olympian performance, the former coach of the France team especially wanted to highlight the beautiful Alsatian evening, and the tactical choices made by Thierry Laurey, whose five-man defense has long neutralized any Marseille offensive inclination. Scratching in passing the Olympian President Pablo Longoria, who had caused a small media earthquake by criticizing the French coaches who did not offer a model and were poorly exported abroad.

“If I have five minutes I will go see him to offer him my project”
“OM hanging on to the Vélodrome by a Strasbourg team with a real collective concept, no offense to Mr. Longoria. Bravo to Thierry Laurey”, tweeted the one who has been removed from the benches since February 11, after a weak record of four draws and four defeats for no victory with Nantes. He is not the only one to have apostrophed Longoria after the OM-Strasbourg match.
Questioned by Canal + Sport, the Alsatian coach has also split a small pike towards the Spanish president, 34 years old and at the head of the Olympian club for two months. “For a French coach, it’s not too bad. If I have five minutes I’ll go see him to offer him my project. We’ll see,” said Thierry Laurey with humor, without citing the leader. Dirty evening for Pablo Longoria.
