Before arriving at theOlympic Marseille, Pablo Longoria worked at Valencia FC in Spain. One of his strong signatures was that of former Lyonnais Mouctar Diakhaby…
The Guinean international is coming to the end of his contract next summer and the Valencian leaders are therefore looking for a way out so that he does not leave for free. As a reminder, Pablo Longoria had to pay 15M€ in 2018 to FC Valence for him to obtain the signing of the player.
Marca explains that the Spanish club therefore logically offered the player to Olympique de Marseille. However, they would have been made to understand that Diakhaby is neither a plan A nor a plan B currently for OM. One of the reasons given would be the club’s style of play today.
It will be a priority for us to take an attacking player this winter
“First of all, my thoughts are with Amine. He is better off morally. It’s a blow for the club, it means a lot to the locker room. He is someone we appreciate, for his level on and off the pitch. If we sell Gerson and we lose Harit, and the tendency is that he misses the whole season, yes it will be a priority for us to take an offensive player this winter. » pablo Longoria – source: Press conference (15/11/2022)
#longoria on Amine #Harit “I have thoughts for him. It’s a blow for the club and for the player. He is very important to us, what he represents for the locker room and what he gives to the atmosphere… He is very appreciated for his football and his human level” #OM #ConfOM
