Pablo Longoria’s turn
And we’re talking about style of play.” Haven’t you been too ambitious in relation to the context? “Yes, any change, you have to take time to adapt,” defends Longoria. In football there are different things. I think football is going to evolve towards a more physical football and more based on the transition game. We wanted to take this direction. The truth is that we are not going to judge Igor Tudor’s real OM for the month of September. It is a process. The adaptation, the arrival of new players , allows us to pick up speed, but we as a club are on the path we have taken”.
Nuno Tavares has the national team in the back of his mind.
“Yes, that’s one of my goals and I dream every day of competing in a World Cup, that’s also why I’m here.”
What tipped the scales for OM?
“No, it wasn’t difficult, my response was quick. It was more between the clubs that there were small problems. They are playing in the Champions League and they finished second last season.”
The turn of Nuno Tavares, who arrives from Arsenal
“We are going to develop a more physical game, more vertical, which demands a lot from the full-backs and has become a priority for us”.
“Are you ready to face a context that can be difficult?”
“The club is already in crisis while the championship has not started”… the question is a bit funny. Good response from Luis Suárez: “To be a footballer you have to be prepared to face all challenges and OM is one of them for me. During the match against Milan I had a lot of fun, from the warm-up”. This responsibility motivates me.”
“I am satisfied with my last season”
Luis Suárez knows that he needs to score more, but he is quite happy with his progress.
We continue with Luis Suarez
Also presented by Pablo Longoria. “a striker adapted to Igor Tudor’s style of play. He is a forward-looking player for the development we want for the club. He has all the attributes we look for in an OM striker.”
Blanco played with López on the Spain youth team.
“He told me he would help me in any way he could. It is the first time that I come abroad, it is not easy but it helps me a lot”.
Around the presentation of Rubén Blanco
“He was the first option for us as a goalkeeper,” explains Pablo Longoria.
About the meeting with the coach and management
“The meeting, I was not there! We had just a few minutes to discuss with the coach, the president and the players, a completely normal discussion. There are discussions, sometimes misunderstandings, but we are all clear about the club’s discourse.” Sometimes there are things that are a bit exciting but since everything is new and what we propose on the pitch is very demanding… but it happens everywhere like that in football. We argued between men and managed to flatten everything, that’s my feeling,” explains Jonathan Clauss.
“A normal preparation for any top player”
There is also no controversy about the preparation although the results of Marseille have not been exceptional so far.
In the coach Igor Tudor
There is no controversy for Clauss, who explains that he feels comfortable in the system, which is the same as in Lens.
“He gave up part of his salary to come here”
“I wanted to say that publicly,” explains Pablo Longoria who explains that he played to facilitate negotiations between the two clubs.
Let’s go to the conf, and we start with Jonathan Clauss and Longoria
The 4 players will speak first, then Longoria will speak for ten minutes at the end. “Welcome Jonathan,” Longoria begins, “it’s a pleasure to introduce you, you’re a player who doesn’t need many introductions.”
4 recruits show up this Wednesday
French international Jonathan Clauss, Portuguese Nuno Tavares, and former League residents Rubén Blanco and Luis Suárez.
Hello and welcome everyone on this live
The start of the press conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Two days before the start of the championship, they are waiting impatiently, after the somewhat catastrophic preparation of OM (a single victory) and the upheavals linked to the surprising resignation of Sampaoli and the painful arrival of Igor Tudor, Longoria’s direct choice. The president of OM will speak on this topic during the presentation of the recruits.
