The former president of the RCT Mourad Boudjellal assured this Tuesday in the Super Moscato Show on
that he had not given up on his plan to buy OM.
“When I get up at home in the morning, I look at the Mediterranean.
Frank McCourt sees the Atlantic.
Many friends pushed for me to get this club back.
The most serious thing is not to succeed or to fail, it is not to try ”.
Mourad Boudjellal also confirms his engagement with the Franco-Tunisian businessman Mohamed Ajroudi, “I am a faithful person.
This club has incredible potential (…) On the other hand, I cannot guarantee that it will be ours.
But it will sell.
Because this club can become an abyss for Frank McCourt.
When you have a 67,000-seat stadium with 4,000 hospitality seats that's empty, that's a long season.
When you have expected an increase in TV rights, and the broadcaster tells you, finally, I'm not going to pay, that's a lot in the budget.
(...) After a while, I think Frank McCourt, in the space of a few months, he changed his mind. "
Boudjellal also still dreams of recruiting Zinedine Zidane as a coach: "If tomorrow I was president of OM, there is a guy, I would sleep in front of his house until he is fed up, it is Zidane.
Either he kicks me, he frees me, or by dint of seeing me he will say yes because he can no longer, but it is the duty of a president of OM.
He doesn't have an obligation to succeed, but he has a duty to try. ”
