Frank McCourt arriving in Marseille on Monday, Jorge Sampaoli on Tuesday

RMC SportLa Provence and L’Équipe report that American owner of Ligue 1 side Marseille, Frank McCourt, will arrive in France on Monday to meet with supporter groups following his decisions to demote Jacques-Henri Eyraud and hire Jorge Sampaoli as manager, 4 weeks on from fans storming the training ground with fireworks and incurring thousands of Euros in damages through the smashing up of OM facilities.

Jorge Sampaoli will arrive in Marseille on Tuesday, but per French government regulations will likely be forced to self-isolate for 7 days – the club may ask for special dispensation to allow for a shorter isolation period, but as of Sunday evening it was not yet clear whether they intend to do so.
