Villas-Boas presents his resignation due to a rocambolesque signing

Olympique de Marseille has already issued a statement suspending the Portuguese coach from employment and salary after announcing his resignation hours before.


André Villas-Boas has resigned as coach of Olympique de Marseille. That is how forceful the Portuguese has been in a press conference that lasted a few minutes due to a news that has generated controversy and whose main reason is the hiring of Olivier Ntcham yesterday. The OM coach has confirmed that he did not request the arrival of the Celtic midfielder and that it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

"The market has ended with the arrival of Ntcham. It is a decision that has been made without me, and I made it clear this morning. He is a player for whom I have said no. He was not on our list of futuribles. I have I got up and I saw on the OM information website number 1 that we had signed a new player. I have submitted my resignation to the club. I do not agree with the sports policy. I do not want any money from Marseille, only that they let me leave. I await the feedback from the sports management ", stressed Villas-Boas.

The resignation of the Portuguese coach comes at the worst moment of the season for Marseille, who had added three consecutive defeats in Ligue 1 and in the middle of a crisis with the fans, who stormed the Marseille training center on Saturday, causing the suspension of the match against Rennes.

But this was not the first time that Villas-Boas resigned, but it already did so on January 17, the day after Marseille lost 1-2 at home against Nimes, the penultimate classified at that time of La Ligue 1. On that occasion, the club did not accept the resignation and encouraged him to continue. After that setback, there were two more defeats and the incident of the Ultras in the sports city ...
