An appeal was launched on social networks by Marseille supporters to provide support to the Spanish president and his right-hand man Javier Ribalta.
Heckled by the supporters group leaders during a meeting Monday evening, the president of OM Pablo Longoria has temporarily withdrawn from his functions with his football director, Javier Ribalta. Consequently, the two men will not attend the Marseille club’s match this Thursday (9 p.m.) in Amsterdam against Ajax, while their future at the club remains up in the air.
This Thursday morning, a few hours after the broadcast of Longoria’s shocking interview in the columns of Provence, Marseille supporters decided to step up to the plate on social networks. A call has in fact been launched to OM lovers, invited to gather this Saturday, September 23 at the Commanderie training center in order to provide their support to the management.
