Speaking to France Football, Marseille President Vincent Labrune confirmed that he wants to keep Marcelo Bielsa as the club’s manager beyond the end of this season.
He had the following to say:
“I do not totally believe that he will be leaving, but it is a possibility that we have had to consider from the start. His contract with another negotiable year is an appreciated structure. Nobody is treating him as a traitor. At Marseille, we will gather round a table after the final game of the season and we will discuss it. I am not getting into the story. The ball is in his court. Ideally, I want to keep him. I would be super happy if he continued with us. You have to see where we are coming from. We were 6th last season. Today we are fighting for 1st place, thanks to the mentality of Marcelo, we are carried by his mindset.”
