Andre Villas-Boas has sensationally offered to resign as Marseille’s boss due to the club’s decision to
sign Olivier Ntcham against his wish. The club is yet to announce if they will accept his offer of resignation.
The 43-year-old made his feelings known that he didn’t want to bring in Olivier Ntcham from Celtic,
though the French outfit signed him anyway.
He claims that he told the club who he wanted to sign as a replacement for Morgan Sanson who
left to join Aston Villa.
Villas-Boas also declared he had no say in the loan departure of Nemanja Radonjic to Hertha Berlin.
His shock resignation offer comes just days after Marseille supporters stormed the club’s Robert Louis-Dreyfus
Centre training ground following their awful run of form.
The ex-Porto manager told reporters: “I have resigned because I don’t agree with the sporting policy of the club.
“I said no to the signing of Olivier Ntcham. He wasn’t on our list. I had nothing to do with this decision.
“Ntcham is a player I said no to. I was not aware [he had signed], I learned it in the press this morning
when I woke up.
“I’m waiting for a response from management, and if it’s no, we’ll keep going.
I don’t want any money, just want to leave. I want to be clear with you, don’t want anything from
OM or Frank [McCourt].
“I gave my opinion for the replacement of Sanson but I can not accept, as a professional, that [not being informed].
“This has nothing to do with the weekend incidents. It’s just in relation to what I want on the sporting
aspects and which was not understood.
Even for Nemanja Radonjic, I was informed that very morning. “I’m waiting for a response from the
management and if it’s a no (to the resignation) then we continue.
I repeat, I don’t want any money I just want to leave.
