The new coach of Togo was at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus on Saturday morning to meet Alaixys Romao. Claude Le Roy also took the opportunity to talk about OM.

Small, black glasses on the nose and a big scarf around his neck to face the mistral, Claude Le Roy, coach of Togo since April 6th, continues his meetings with the executives of the Togolese team. After meeting Emmanuel Adebayor in London in midweek, the "white warlock" came to see Alaixys Romao this Saturday in Marseilles. He arrived at the edge of the training ground before the players and he first met with Michel and Franck Passi, before greeting the Olympians and closely monitoring the last training of the Olympians before the match Monaco-OM . At the end of the session, Claude Le Roy escorted Alaixys Romao to the locker room. The latter has also chambered his Cameroonian teammate Nicolas Nkoulou, predicting him the future success of Togo " With this coach, we will now beat you ," he said dropping him. Sébastien Iglesias, director of the magazine Objectif Match on OMtv and OMtv Online, took the opportunity to ask his expert opinion to Claude Le Roy on the Olympian status. Former PSG sporting director is sad to see the OM-rated so poorly, but remains true to his philosophy and optimistic about the future: "' What is most damaging in football, in League 1 in particular, is to go down. But it happens to miss a season. Then, the following season, everyone is off again on the same line and things get normal again. Even if I led the PSG, I love OM and it is essential for French football to have a great Paris and a great OM. "Given the various events that have marked the season of Marseille Olympique, the new coach of Togo overwhelms nobody and sharply criticize the sometimes exaggerated actions or aims against people who have responsibilities within club, since he is convinced of the willingness of each to give their best for the institution, " I do not like things unnecessarily aggressive. It is a passionate field. It may be clear, but it is useless to add malice in this thing. I am still convinced that those who have responsibilities in institutions like OM always make decisions thinking to do the best for their club. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. "Now that the Olympic parenthesis is over, Claude Le Roy, who holds the record of the number of participations in the CAN (8), now has much to do with the Togolese selection, which is poorly embedded in the CAN 2017 qualifiers. By his own admission, "It would take a miracle to qualify". We wish him good luck.
