Candidate for the post of sports director of Olympique de Marseille, Fabrizio Ravanelli would like to obtain the loan from Gonzalo Higuain.
Fabrizio Ravanelli already sees himself there. And the former strikerOlympic Marseille thinks big for the Marseille club, whose he would like to be the next sports director, or rather the “head of football” sought by Jacques-Henri Eyraud.
Candidate for the succession of Andoni Zubizarreta, Ravanelli can not rely too much on his coaching career, not very convincing, like his failed stint at Ajaccio in 2013. However, he relies on his address book. “I have a lot of relationships with very important clubs”, assured the former Juventus player on Friday evening on the L’Equipe channel.
Higuain, an out-of-reach salary for OM
Ravanelli indeed relies on its proximity to certain leaders to make pretty moves at lower cost. An example ? For the center-forward position, the former Italian international aims very high since he simply dreams of Gonzalo Higuain, 8 goals in 33 games this season with the Juve. “Would he come? I do not know! He could be an important player in OM for the Champions League. He may be able to leave. He is 32 years old, there may be the possibility of getting it loaned ”explains Ravanelli.
The Transalpine is said “Capable of bringing players who can ignite the Velodrome”. Passed by the club between 1997 and 1999, where he left a good memory, Ravanelli knows well that in Marseille more than elsewhere, it is essential to convince the supporters. With Higuain, he sells them a beautiful dream, difficult to access. Beyond the sporting aspect, there is the financial question. How to attract a player who would currently receive around 7.5 million net per year in Italy?
