Ghana star Andre Ayew backs Bielsa to revitalise Marseille
Andre Ayew has backed Marcelo Bielsa to replace interim head coach Jose Anigo at Marseille next season and be a success in Ligue 1.
The former Argentina, Chile and Athletic Bilbao coach has been linked with a move to France in recent months and the two parties have reportedly reached an agreement.
No official announcement has been made regarding the club’s next boss, but forward Ayew believes that Bielsa would be an excellent choice at the Stade Velodrome.
Marseille sit sixth in the table with three games remaining and the Ghana international hopes that whoever takes over can improve on their disappointing campaign.
“Whether Bielsa or another, what matters to me is that OM will develop next season and the (right) mentality will be chosen,” he said.
“Because at the moment, despite all the talk about Bielsa, we do not know (what is happening).
“I think he (Bielsa) can bring a lot to OM, including a new look.”
