For good news, it’s good news. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has decided to suspend the ban on recruiting Olympique de Marseille until October.
Qualified directly for the next Champions League, OM knew that their transfer market could be very small since in the context of the Pape Gueye affair, Frank McCourt’s club had been sanctioned with a summer transfer window ban and winter. In order to plead its case, Marseille had seized the Court of Arbitration for Sport several months ago, expecting the body based in Switzerland to work on the merits of the case, but also to suspend the decision taken by FIFA.
OM can prepare for the transfer window without shaking
An incredible scenario until deliverance at the very end of the match! 💥

And this Monday, L’Equipe affirms that Pablo Longoria was informed that the CAS had decided that following the appeal of the Marseille club, there was reason to suspend the sanction. Even if Olympique de Marseille risks a conviction, the final judgment of the appeal being expected for next October, this first decision allows the president of OM to be able to manage the summer transfer market more serenely, in terms of timing. . Something to delight Marseille, which must now expand the workforce of Jorge Sampaoli so that the latter can have something to shine in the Champions League.
