OM, Gasset throws out the name of his favorite: “An extraordinary little one”


By: Manu Tournoux

After OM’s big victory against Villarreal (4-0), Jean-Louis Gasset did not hesitate to distribute the good points.

Four consecutive victories, goals in spades and a newfound confidence: the start of Jean-Louis Gasset’s mandate on the bench of Olympique de Marseille is idyllic. The French technician has breathed new life into the Canebière. Its very participatory management is bearing fruit.

Over the past two weeks, several players in the Marseille group have regained confidence, from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Jonathan Clauss, including Amine Harit and Illiman Ndiaye. Less visible, another element also scored points in the eyes of Jean-Louis Gasset.

“He will become a very great player”

After the convincing victory against Villarreal, the OM coach made very complimentary remarks about Ismaïla Sarr. “He is going to become a very great player, he has speed, he is capable of repeating efforts, he only needs this last gesture to master, but we don’t have time to work unfortunately. It’s a little extraordinary. »

An exit which should not leave Sarr indifferent. Arriving at OM last summer, the Senegalese international was not spared from criticism.
