OM, Eyraud aims for the European top 20

Jacques-Henri Eyraud has announced his ambition to raise the OM to the European top 20.

Despite the financial difficulties the club faces for several months, Jacques-Henri Eyraud has big plans for OM. The president of Marseille even hopes to make his club one of the best European teams.

In his Linkedin account, Eyraud published a statement this Sunday explaining the strategy OM has for the future. He wants to cross new levels and claims that he also has models to follow in this direction. “Our main goal is to get excellent sports results,” he says. […] At the same time, we are gradually transforming OM […] reaching the standards of the European top 20. Since my arrival, I have visited several major clubs. […] In Barcelona, ​​I discovered that nothing was possible without a strong attention to the club’s identity, its preservation at all costs, but also its constant reinforcement. In Manchester City, I discovered the power of a win-win partnership between a city and a club. “

The man with the nickname JHE has also stated his intention to recruit a football expert to support him in his task. : “A football club should not be a one-man show with a general president. The quality of the management team by his side is an absolutely critical success factor. The recruitment of “head of football” stems from this logic: to increase a little more power on the sporting aspect by recruiting a specialist in the football world who has a profile of a new type. “

Finally, Eyraud thinks of one “Head of Business”, who would be monitoring “All operational and functional functions of the club except football”. “One of the keys to the club’s long-term success is the close relationship between” head of football “and” business manager “, he concluded.
