Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Geyoro, Karchaoui and Périsset’s “Little Sister” interview!
Igor Tudor, the coach of Olympique de Marseille, was present at a press conference for Saturday evening’s meeting against Nantes. The opportunity for him to discuss the transfer window in comments reported by RMC Sport.
On the arrival of Kaboré and the rest of the transfer window
“He was a recruit we wanted, he’s a player with an interesting physique and who already knows Ligue 1. It’s sure that we will surely arrive as a defender and for the rest we’ll see.”
On the whistles
“We play for the fans. The whistles in the first game brought us luck. If I get whistled again and we win, fine. The important thing is that the players don’t get whistled.”
On his offensive potential
“It depends a bit on the match we have to face, we have a striker in front and two variable players depending on the opponent. There are things to improve, players arrived late and we have things to work on but I’m happy with the squad I have, with very different profiles, but the objective is for them to score goals and make assists. It’s true that Suarez arrived late, Sanchez arrived three days before the match, Milik had problems at the start of the season, Payet and Bakambu can play in all three positions…”
On a potential hierarchy at the position of number 9
“There is no number 1, 2 or 3, it really depends game after game. It’s true that we have a lot of players with 6 or 7 players for only 3 positions, but it will really be decided at each match.”
On the preparation
“It was a short preparation, quite normal from my point of view. I don’t think it was that exhausting but it was short and we didn’t do as much work as I would have liked.”
On Alexis Sanchez
“Of course Alexis is a champion, he really wants to do well, he’s not here to have fun, he brings a lot of seriousness. I’m very happy he’s here, it has a positive influence on the game. ‘crew.”
Igor Tudor, the coach of Olympique de Marseille, has confirmed that he wants to recruit a central defender by the end of the transfer window.
