Author of a double against Nice on Wednesday, Saîf-Eddine Khaoui had been marginalized by André Villas-Boas.
Revenge is necessarily sweet for Saîf-Eddine Khaoui. Reduced to the minimum portion since returning to Marseilles in the summer of 2019, the Tunisian international did not miss his chance on Wednesday for his first start of the season. Aligned by Nasser Larguet in the right lane of the Marseille attack, the former Tourangeau has indeed scored his first goals in the Marseille jersey since his arrival at the club in 2016.

A double all the more memorable for the Parisian by birth as he allowed Olympique de Marseille to win 3-2 against theOGC Nice, the Ciel et Blanc thus ending a series of seven games without a win. ” I already had a chance to hold it, it had been so long that I had been waiting for this, he also confided. I think it will be our benchmark match for the rest and we are leaving with three points tonight. It’s awesome.“
The story is therefore beautiful for Saîf-Eddine Khaoui. It is less so for the usual holders of the Marseille attack, like Valère Germain, who entered late in the game and who still only posts 3 goals in 20 appearances this season. A Valère Germain who, with his 330,000 euros per month, receives no less than 20 times more than the hero of Wednesday. The player, who was loaned to Troyes then Caen between 2017 and 2019, is indeed the lowest salary of the club. He thus receives less than Lucas Perrin (42,000 euros) or Christopher Rocchia (20,000 euros).
With new blood, OM trembles but lives again!
