Stepped up to regret Boubacar Kamara’s situation, Pablo Longoria was strongly criticized by a former club player.
THE’Olympic Marseille is in the hard. If the Ciel et Blancs have launched their summer transfer window perfectly, with already no less than eight signatures, and have also been convincing since the start of the preparation, they are however experiencing the worst difficulties to lighten their locker room and their payroll. A situation that causes some tension.
Evidenced by the reaction of Pablo Longoria, Monday, in a press conference to the mention of the case Boubacar Kamara. The young French midfielder actually has only one year of contract with OM and seems decided not to extend. The international hopes are therefore a candidate at the start but the leaders of Marseille have all the trouble in the world to find him a way out. At least a way out that brings him between 20 and 30 million euros.
They are funny but they don’t let him go
” Having a player at the end of the contract is not pleasant, especially when the player in question comes from your training center, launched the Marseille president. I don’t like having a player at the end of the contract in my squad, it’s a reality. No one is above the institution. OM’s position with all the players is that we don’t want them at the end of the contract at the end of the season. “And for Stéphane Sparagna, former OM defender, this is the crux of the matter.
“They’re funny but they won’t let him go!” Either you extend or you leave but why they do not accept the 12M €, was surprised the one who was launched by Marcelo Bielsa with Football CLub de Marseille. It’s not a lot for Kamara but good. With the current market… There was COVID, lots of stuff. He was not in the French team too. Doesn’t that penalize him? Him, as a footballer, no! But OM as a market value, yes. He is a young player, a lot of big European clubs are behind him. They will wait until it is at the end of the contract to take it free. For a player, it’s more interesting to go free. Financially, you have the signing bonus and the salary which is higher because there is no transfer unlike a purchase. Kamara, I understand he doesn’t want to extend. Of course, it does not please the supporters or the club but his personal interest is to go free. Or OM let it go at 12 / 15M €. Better to take that than nothing next season! ”
