“The decision was made by mutual agreement”

Between theOM and Jacques Cardoze, so it’s over. Asked by Puremedia, he then justified himself on this big decision. ” The decision was made by mutual agreement. The president wanted to reorganize his communication around the director of football and the administrative and marketing director. I think I was very useful to him when he arrived and he didn’t know France very well. He had everything to learn from this position. Little by little, he gained confidence and today, he doesn’t really need me anymore “, first explained cardoze.

“What is difficult is not to complete an adventure”

The former communications director ofOM then confided: I leave with regrets? What is difficult is not completing an adventure. It had been 16 months since I made this change, a choice that was quite strong and not classic. I knew that football was a volatile world, with a lot of pressure, permanent changes, I always knew it went with the position. I leave with my head held high, it was a very enriching experience. Being inside the machine and seeing how things work was exciting “.

An idea for my future employer? I find myself in a bit of an unprecedented situation, it’s not common. I have already started to make a few phone calls, contacted benevolent people in some important media. But nothing concrete for the moment. On the other hand, if this is your question, I will not resume my previous activities at “Complément d’Enquête” “, he added for his future.
