OM: Tudor has a headache against Angers?

After receiving a new warning this Sunday against Rennes, Nuno Tavares will be suspended for the trip to Angers, after the international break.

G. Bastien warned this Saturday against Rennes (1-1), Nuno Tavares will not participate in the next Ligue 1 match of OM. 1, must do without the left side of the Portuguese who received his third warning since the start of the championship. Igor Tudor has no other left piston specialist in his squad. While Sead Kolasinac has always played in this position at Arsenal, he has been more comfortable since the start of the season in a three-man defence. The Croatian coach may choose to align Jonathan Clauss on the left side of the defense and put Issa Kaboré in his place on the right (or vice versa). A new sight puzzle for Igor Tudor…

“With my agents we always want an option to buy but…”

The author of three Ligue 1 goals with Olympique de Marseille since the start of the season, Nuno Tavares has made a good start at the Marseille club. The Portuguese defender was once again in action against Rennes on Sunday at the Stade Vélodrome (1-1).

“With my agents we always wanted an option to buy but Arsenal didn’t want to have one. We wanted to have one. But that doesn’t matter anymore, I’m at Marseille, and with or without the option I’m happy. » Nuno Tavares – source: RMC (02/09/2022)

Mercato OM: Saliba’s return, Longoria tried everything but…

After a season spent in the colors of OM, William Saliba returns to Arsenal. Pablo Longoria did his best to bring back the French defender and even tried a last resort at the end of the transfer window, to no avail.

On loan at OM last season, William Saliba returned to London this summer. The French defender left a beautiful memory to the supporters of Marseille with the qualification for the Champions League obtained on the last day of the championship. Despite his recent very high rating in the transfer market, Pablo Longoria tried everything to bring Saliba back to Marseille for an additional season. According to information from the Italian journalist Luca Bendoni, a close collaborator of Gianluca Di Marzio, the president of Marseille would have increased the exchanges with the agent of the 21-year-old defender in the hope that OM would do it, without benefit…

I am at home here

Undisputed starter last season with OM, Saliba’s successful performances at the club opened doors for him for the France team a few months before the World Cup. The 21-year-old defender has also turned a corner since his return to England. An integral part of Mikel Arteta’s system, he has scored two goals since his return to the Gunners. If the tricolor international has never hidden his intention to continue his adventure in Marseille, he now feels very happy at Arsenal. Long awaited by supporters, the return of OM now seems impossible. The former ASSE defender also announced that he has no intention of leaving the Gunners. “I’m at home here, I love London, I love this club. I like everything here, I feel at home”

“Saliba is the type of player in the Champions League you need”

In Débat Foot Marseille, Benjamin Courmes regretted the departure of William Saliba. He believes the international is the style of player OM needs to recruit to have a chance to shine in the Champions League.

“On the Champions League recruits, I think we already have the answer, Sampaoli left. Champions League players a priori are not there, or else they are not opportunities in the market, like Mbemba. To start, we said to ourselves, yes Saliba if we can believe at least until the end, if he can’t play at Arsenal, he wants to come back. In fact, he is the type of player in the Champions League that we can have, he is the player who wants to leave at the end of the transfer window, because he feels that he will not play, with a World Cup in a few months. , he must appear. You have the free player who did not find it at the last moment and you the one who will catch him. But I don’t see OM putting 20, 30 million euros like OM put in Gerson last year, even if there is a real sale. Unless you sell Gerson” Benjamin Courmes Source: Marseille Football Club (07/25/2022)
