Member of the club’s supervisory board marseilles since being retired by owner Frank McCourt, in February 2021Jacques-Henri Eyraud is in Istanbul this Thursday to attend the draw for the group stage of the Champions League.
Within a delegation of six members, he notably escorts his successor to the presidency, Pablo Longoria, and the director of football, Javier Ribalta. The communication director, Jacques Cardoze, is in Marseille. “JHE” has remained close to McCourt since his dismissal, working alongside him on the launch of the “Liberty” project, aimed at revolutionizing the architecture of new technologies and the Internet. In Istanbul, he participated Thursday in a meeting of the ECA, the association of European clubs, as a representative of OM in the bodies.
On the other hand, Eyraud did not set foot again at the Vélodrome. He was content to work within the authorities, to accompany McCourt to certain meetings with senior leaders of French football and to advise the American shareholder on his strategic choices. This is his first really “official” release, after a year and a half in the shadows.
