Despite a most complicated start to the 2011/2012 Ligue 1 campaign, Olympique de Marseille are once again back to their best. Taking advantage of the recent situation, president Vincent Labrune took some time out to discuss his relationship with
the staff and players.
Since losing 2-0 to at the Stade de Gerland a few weeks back, Ligue 1 giants Olympique de Marseille have seen a revival in their fortunes. The historic Champions League win over German Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund was certainly
the best way to announce their return to best form and Les Phoceens could mount a title assault come the final few weeks of the Championnat.
An unexpected start to the new season got the better of the club as relationship between Didier Deschamps and Jose Anigo that have never been rosy, sink down even further.
However, while talking to Le Parisien, Vincent Labrune returned to that situation. Labrune said that in other big clubs in and
Kombouare as a big example of why the game is not a choir for boys.
Though Labrune admits that Jose Anigo and Didier Deschamps are not the best of friends, they both have a burning ambition to make the club as strong as possible.
Labrune further emphasised unity in the team and said that whatever happens, OM will always win together and lose together.
While talking about Jose Anigo, Labrune said that the Frenchman has served the club by recruiting good players. Labrune took the examples of Loic Remy, Andre Ayew and who were the scorers of Marseille’s 3-2 victory over Dortmund and said
that those players arrived at the club because of Anigo.
“I try to be accessible and open. However, I am not their friend and they know it: neither Cheyrou, Diawara, Gignac nor Valbuena – it’s all give and take. One can speak of a relationship of trust between us,” Labrune said.
With to play 19 games in the second half of the campaign, Labrune knows that the club would do well to avoid any media stand-offs which had become far too common in the early days of the season.
