New Marseille boss Igor Tudor speaks on his ‘intense and courageous’ coaching style

During his first press conference as Olympique de Marseille manager, Igor Tudor outlined his teams’ playing style which has been highlighted as ambitious in his high-pressing oriented approach. The Croatian outlined his vision for Marseille:

“Every coach is different. I want courageous and intensive football not only uniquely based on the defence. I want people who come to the stadium to be entertained and not disappointed at all. It’s inevitable that there is a part of Italy in me because I worked there for long time. You have to pick players that are adapted to the game with passion and desire – I’m sure we will get to that point.” 

The Croatian replaces Jorge Sampaoli after the Argentine’s shock exit on Friday. The former Juventus assistant, who was managing fellow Serie A club Hellas Verona this past season before leaving the club in May, has signed a two-year deal with Ligue 1’s second-place finishers. He has been praised for his ambitious, pressing-oriented style of play.

Sampaoli’s exit was quickly negotiated at the end of last week, with the former Argentina and Chile manager reportedly resigning over what he saw a lack of ambition in the transfer window ahead of next year’s Champions League campaign.
