Asked in the columns of L’Equipe, Maxime Lopez returned to his departure from Olympique de Marseille.
Considered by many observers as one of the revelations of the season in Serie A, Maxime Lopez saw Sassuolo again. A rebirth which is not enough, however, to make him forget his difficult moments lived in Marseilles before leaving for Italy.
“I suffered at OM for not playing. I was buried a bit, I was forgotten. I showed that I was still there. It was like redemption for me. Now my future is in Italy for four years ”, he explained in an interview with The team.
And according to the Marseille midfielder, André Villas-Boas was primarily responsible for these difficult moments at OM. “It was complicated with AVB but we had an honest relationship. And frankness in this environment is not always that. I went to see him plenty of times to ask him why I wasn’t playing. He always told me that he had found his typical environment and that it was hard to change, even if I deserved to play sometimes ”, he explained, adding: “He ended up telling me that it was better that I go. ”
