If he expected a quiet press conference yesterday afternoon, Pablo Longoria must have quickly become disenchanted. The president of OM wanted to take stock of the transfer window. He was asked about his inability to sell his players dearly but also about the sea serpent of the sale. The Spaniard was categorical on the subject … as on previous occasions: “First thing. I was on the phone with Frank McCourt, after the transfer window on Thursday. We spent an hour and a half there. we were going to play, how he found the team, how we will make Harit play… Really, we see every day that he enjoys following the team ».
« He is with us a lot, a lot in all the sporting discussions and he is happy with the improvement. He told me that he was happy with the transfer window, with the team made. We have ambition. But football , if we talk about ambition like money, in this case, no German club can be competitive in Europe, no Spaniard with economic control… For me, ambition is not the money. The ambition is to be present. Frank, he is present. We know that we have a solid owner, we have an owner who gives us confidence, who supports us in all the changes we have brought to the club. He has supported them since day one. He is happy with the coach. He shows such support for the coach that it is impressive to see the level of commitment he has. If having ambition c is to put 100 M€ each season, I don’t believe in this type of football, to tell the truth. er money, figuring out how to make an even more competitive squad. Because we consider that sports results are what allows us to have more money each season to make a better squad. For me, the football of the future is that. I don’t believe in football where an owner comes in with €200m to do things. »
