Marseille’s Gerson and manager Igor Tudor in training ground bust-up

La Provence report that Marseille midfielder Gerson and his new manager Igor Tudor had an altercation during training on Tuesday, in the lead up to the team’s (ultimately not so) friendly match against Real Betis which finished 1-1.

Journalist Alexandre Jacquin explains that nothing came of the altercation in the end, and that the tension was down to the fact that the Marseille players are in the process of adapting to Tudor’s strict coaching methods.

Tudor arrived during the summer in the wake of the abrupt departure of Jorge Sampaoli, who was ostensibly unhappy with the direction and pace of the club’s transfer dealings at the start of the summer. 

The 44-year-old arrived after a spell last year at Hellas Verona and having previously been assistant manager of Juventus. He is described as being a coach with a particularly strong character.

OM will have their final pre-season friendly against Milan on Sunday evening, before kicking off their Ligue 1 season at home against Reims the following weekend.
