Olympique Marseille name Marcelino as new head coach!

Olympique de Marseille have announced the signing of Marcelino as new head coach.

Having passed through numerous historic clubs, Marcelino García Toral has carved out a reputation thanks to his tactical acumen and the trophies he has won over the course of his career. With Valencia CF, he notably won the Copa del Rey against FC Barcelona in 2019 and took the club to the UEFA Champions League during his two seasons. In 2021, again against the Catalan club, he enabled Athletic Club Bilbao to add a Spanish Super Cup to their honours, the Basque club’s first trophy since 1984.

Advocating collective organization and vertical play, Marcelino is recognized for the work ethic and demanding standards he instills in his teams. He has won the title of best coach in the Spanish league three times, most recently in 2018.

Javier Ribalta, sporting director of OM, said, “Marcelino’s arrival fits with the desire to give continuity to the club’s project. Our numerous discussions have shown shared determination and understanding. His expertise and personality meet the demands of the highest level. His experience will also be a considerable asset in strengthening the work undertaken last season.”

New Olympique Marseille head coach Marcelino said, “I want to thank Olympique de Marseille for the trust placed in me. Our discussions about the team and the project have encouraged reflection in making an informed and considered decision. Along with my entire staff, we are convinced by the project. I understand the responsibility that this mission represents and our commitment will be total.”
