OM complete a historic transfer, they let go completely

Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university course that it was important to evolve in a field that we appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to the dream of my parents, who saw me as a future lawyer, to live from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered mercatos and sports news, trying to inform readers as well as possible.

Last January, OM broke the bank to get their hands on Vitinha, who had started the season at Sporting Braga. Recruited against a check for €32m, the Portuguese player has become the club’s most expensive recruit. In an interview with the regional press this Friday, the striker returned at length to his arrival in Marseille and his first steps in France.

Looking for a striker capable of supporting Alexis Sanchez, OM spent nearly €32m to get his hands on Vitinha. A sum, which had the effect of creating enormous expectation around the Portuguese player, trained in Sporting Braga. But it is clear that his beginnings were not the height. Regardless, Vitinha does not regret his arrival at OM.

Vitinha ignites after his arrival

There were a lot of expectations from the supporters but it was my goal: I’m making a dream come true, that of playing abroad. At the beginning, I was not used to all that but gradually, the work makes that I manage to catch up with the movement » dropped wine in an interview at Dauphine Libere. In a second time, the attacker stopped on his price.

“€32m? It’s a great feeling of pride.”

It’s a great feeling of pride because I feel valued. There is always the question of pressure but I don’t see it as pressure. I already have a requirement to work well, to be a very good player. I am especially grateful to the club for being an important transfer “Admitted the Portuguese player, who also mentioned his expectations.

“I prefer to play with another striker”

I prefer to play with another striker, because I’m used to this system: I played like that in Braga. In my opinion, the attacker is in front of the team and it is up to him to be the leader up front. Mobility is an essential characteristic, as is being physically strong, especially in France (smile), and above all having a good finish to conclude the actions well » said Vitinha.
