Speaking in an interview with TyC Sports, Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos discussed being managed by Marcelo Bielsa at Marseille.
“It was unique to be managed by Marcelo Bielsa. Even if I had not got to know him, he has received a lot of positive comments. One day, his assistant called me to speak to Marcelo. We chatted and that was that. I grabbed my things and left for Marseille. I arrived on Tuesday and there was a match on Saturday. During this period, we did not have any contact, not even during training.”
He also revealed an anecdote from his first match with OM:
“We were coming to the end of the 1st half, we were losing 1-0 (vs Rennes, 7th February 2015). He called me, he told me that I was going to come on and after 10 minutes on the pitch, I scored a goal… He taught me to distance myself (positionally). He was like the professor in La Casa de Papel. He substituted me off a little while later in the match, I was surprised. He then explained the reasons why to me and I understood.”
