André Villas-Boas has told his players “he has not yet left” Marseille, despite Zubizaretta’s departure

RMC Sport report that Marseille manager André Villas-Boas has been communicating with multiple leaders in his dressing room over the last few hours, following meetings between him and President Jacques-Henri Eyraud about his future and the departure of Sporting Director Andoni Zubizaretta, who was initially responsible for AVB’s arrival at the club.

Steve Mandanda, as well as other players, have been in communication with AVB, who has told them that he “has not yet left” the club, but also did not hide the fact that he is unhappy with the current situation and confirmed that he has many disagreements with President Eyraud. Zubizaretta’s departure has so upset Villas-Boas that he has even travell edback to his native Portugal for the moment.

His agents, contacted, repeat that he remains under contract with OM until 2021, which therefore means that a premature departure would result in severance costs. Costs that OM might not be able to afford these days.
