Former Marseille player Samir Nasri believes he knows where Marseille will finish this season.
After a long slump, OM is getting back on track at the moment. The Marseille team has just had three consecutive successes in all competitions. The air is a little more breathable on the Commanderie side and some of its admirers are starting to believe in a successful second part of the season.
Nasri dreams big for OM
Samir Nasri, a veteran of the Olympian house, is one of those who is very optimistic for the future. Having witnessed the Vélodrome’s success against Lyon, he is convinced that Marseille can go very high. Until reaching his pre-season objectives. This is what he said in an interview with OMTV.
“I am very confident for the future. The goal is to be in the top 4 for the Champions League next season. For that, I don’t worry. I’m pretty optimistic.”he confided.
Nasri also sought to highlight the contribution of new coach Gennaro Gattuso, and in particular on a human level. “I think OM was out of place. Afterwards it took some time to adapt. When a coach leaves, a new one arrives, he has a certain way of working. There is a lot of cohesion, it has strengthened the bonds. He also ensures that the group lives well. There are little things that don’t deceive. Having a coach with so much energy on the sidelines, who takes care of his players… These are small gestures but a little hug, a little kiss to the player, it’s important for confidence.
OM’s next meeting is Sunday in Lorient. A new victory and the Marseillais could possibly return to within three points of the Top 4. Enough to approach the end of year celebrations with boosted morale.
