Foot OM – Sale OM: A boiling rumor arrives in Marseille

At the end of last week, OM revealed the identity of their main jersey sponsor for next season: CMA CGM.

The powerful maritime transport group based in Marseille will replace Cazoo and this change has fueled many fantasies at OM, such as that of a takeover of the club by CMA CGM. It must be said that the company created in 1978 weighs very heavily: an essential economic player in the city of Marseille, CMA CGM totals more profit than Total or LVMH over the past year and has just invested in Air France or La Provence. . However, Rodolphe Saadé, CEO of CMA CGM, has no intention of buying Marseille Olympics, contrary to what Daniel Riolo implied a short time ago on his Instagram account. Questioned this Wednesday by France Inter, the boss of the new jersey sponsor of Olympique de Marseille cut the rumors short.

CMA CGM has no intention of buying OM

” Nope. My intention is to put this partnership in place, to develop it with OM and I think that makes a lot of sense. Why this categorical refusal? For OM, it’s a strategic partnership that we’re putting in place and I think that’s enough.” insisted this regular at the Vélodrome, who had already denied the rumors in January 2022. “I don’t want to buy OM or become mayor of Marseille” he confided. On his Instagram account a few days ago, the very informed Daniel Riolo had however launched the rumor about a takeover of the club by CMA CGM. ” And if it was a first step? I’m saying that, I’m not saying anything, but it’s not impossible that we’ll say more soon” had launched the After Foot consultant on RMC. Obviously, Frank McCourt should therefore not sell his club to Rodolphe Saadé even if regarding the sale of Olympique de Marseille, it is a question of always walking on eggshells and never being too certain of what the we move forward because from one day to the next, information drives out a denial and vice versa. In any case, OM have found a new major partner after the fiasco of their last shirt sponsor, and this is significant information in the eyes of the Marseille club’s followers.
