Friday at midday in France, the president of Olympique de Marseille, Jacques-Henri Eyraud, answered questions from five members of the OM community on Viber.

A little more than a month after the first edition of the “Chat with the President”, Jacques-Henri Eyraud again played a question-and-answer game with OM supporters coming from Tunisia (Bessem), Canada (Khalil), Switzerland (Nicolas) and France (Cédric and Baptiste). They asked the Marseille president questions ranging  throughout many topics for nearly 45 minutes.

They exchanged on:

- The Training Center: "It must be a place of excellence in the service of performance. We have already invested a lot, especially in the fitness room which has doubled in size and hosts much more sophisticated equipment for a more individualized monitoring of each player.”

- On International Development, particularly on the North American continent: "The United States is obviously an interesting territory. We often talk about it with Frank. There is a lot to do because Ligue 1 matches are not widely available. In Canada, we probably have a lot of potential also given the historical proximity and our common language, at least in Quebec.”

- The arrival of new investors: "It is not expected for us receive short-term capital investors. OM is fortunate today to have a shareholder who has invested his own funds in the Club and who has the means to his ambitions. There is not one Euro of long-term debt in OM's balance sheet today."
