Whilst he has a concrete approach from Marseille, there is also a potential opportunity for him at Troyes. who are part of the City Football Group. With just three weeks to go until the beginning of the new Ligue 1 season, Foot Mercato revealed that players at the club have gone to the board to request that Irles be sacked.
