Juninho completely under the spell of this OM player!

RMC’s advisor in the program Rothen lights up, Juninho paid tribute to OM’s performance against Sporting on Tuesday. The former Lyon sporting director underlined the good match between several Marseilles, including one in particular!

If Juninho appreciated the skill level of Balerdi and Mbemba, he insisted on underlining Alexis Sanchez’s champion attitude.

Sanchez is really a great player for me

“Congratulations to Marseille! Sanchez is a really great player for me. The attitude he had yesterday, the first goal he’ll be chasing, not all attackers do that. He moves every time, he defends himself, he doesn’t let go. He’s a champ. We thought he was at the end of his career but not at all. (…) I really liked Marseille. I felt some players were much more relaxed than with the fans. Balerdi, Mbemba… even Veretout. I felt a little liberated yesterday. Marseille have a good team”. Juninho – Source: RMC (05.10.2022)

Alexis Sanchez started against Sporting in the Champions League this Tuesday night. The Chilean put in a good performance that particularly impressed Bernard Casoni in an interview with L’Equipe.

“Adan gave OM an opportunity to come back, yes. Then you had to know how to benefit from it. A guy like Alexis Sanchez is at a very, very high level. He never gives up and this is the Champions League. He doesn’t give up, he’s present at every action. As he presses the keeper, he takes a defender but he continues his run. In the 86th, Sanchez was still pushing. It urges guilt. If he doesn’t do that pressing, which others don’t, Adan isn’t making his mistake. And behind that we don’t know what’s going on. Because that blunder changes everything after that pressure from Sanchez, the goalkeeper loses confidence, as does his defense. Everything turns around, because the guy doesn’t give up, he went for goal, he believed in it. And he brought OM back into play. As far as he’s concerned, he really is the best rookie of the summer. In the 86th minute he pressed again! » Bernard Casoni – Source: The Team (05/10/22)
