“Talking about Jorge Sampaoli means talking about a great coach who did an extraordinary job during the season. It is important to balance the season, we have it. We’ve analyzed a lot in recent weeks, things we’ve done well, things we can improve. There is a lot of self-criticism in the club. Our requirements are high. The club’s intention is to give this project continuity. We must strive for stability, which is not always easy to find in football. In decision-making, you must find logic, continuity, regularity. (…) Extension? Jorge Sampaoli is a key figure in the project.“. Pablo Longoria – source: RMC (25.05.2022)
Longoria clarified that he is on the same page as Sampaoli’s demand to be competitive in the Champions League…
Jorge Sampaoli’s comments don’t bother me
“It’s obvious, especially since it’s very important for us to be competitive in the Champions League.” That is one of our goals. We know the historical difficulties of French clubs that have qualified for the Champions League, to have regularity and to chain competitions between the championship, the Champions League … The level of requirements of the Champions League, not only physical but also mental, is very important. You have to be well mentally prepared to be competitive in the Champions League and regularly in the league. It will therefore be important to have players who meet the requirements of the club. Jorge Sampaoli’s comments don’t bother me. They reflect the level of requirements that we also have internally. » Pablo Longoria – source: RMC (25.05.2022)
