This is the end of this press conference.
Little news this week, and a little talkative Igor Tudor, we will know little about the somewhat thorny cases, Payet, Dieng… See you on Sunday for the Nice match.
Do you expect to get Bamba Dieng back in a week?
“It’s a backwards question, I can’t give a good answer. Me, all I can say is there’s still a week left in the transfer window.” It will be understood that the Bamba Dieng subject is always sensitive to OM.
About the 98 World Cup where he was in the Croatian group
“You have to remember that in Croatia, around ’98, there was a war. That’s the first thing that comes to mind. It was of particular importance. We were able to bring joy to our compatriots. They were great memories.”
A first assessment after 3 games?
“I saw good things. There are things that I liked less. Sometimes I expected more from the players. To leave the mark of the coach, you do it over time. And you can’t also have everything. It doesn’t always have to be the coach who suits the team, or the other way around. You have to find the right points in common”.
Will there be a lot of turnover?
“It’s hard to say at the moment. We’ll have to watch game after game, and playing every 3 or 4 days makes a difference, but I’m sure everyone will play.”
About the match in Nice that could be very hot
“I hope everything goes well.”
On the Payet case, still not established
“Normally I see him progress, we will see for the next games what the composition of the team will be like.”
Does Tudor trust Caleta-Car?
“He has one year left on his contract, it’s a special situation. But he’s an important player.”
Sánchez, the number 1 striker?
“Sanchez can play in all three attacking roles. We will really see match after match.”
On Milik’s departure and possible replacement
“It was a fair decision on the part of the club or the player to leave. The weeks that I was able to train Arek I liked, even if it was his choice to leave. At an attacking level, we already have a lot of players.”
On the rumor of Ronaldo in the OM
“Honestly, I never talked about Ronaldo in Marseille. Not even my parents told me.”
Tudor on the Champions League draw
“It’s a good group, we could have found each other worse.”
Igor Tudor’s turn
It was a very clear and constructed step by Pau López, in very good French after only one year in Marseille.
On internal tensions
“It’s normal when you change a lot of things. But on the pitch it stops.”
At the end of the transfer window
“In the transfer window we changed many things that we had to change. Pablo is a very intelligent person, he does things because they had to be done. I am 100% with him”.
Always in the Champions
“It’s the same if I prefer one group or the other: the reality is that we have to play against the teams that touch us. It doesn’t make sense to think about the other teams.”
in his wound
“It’s the match against Betis. I felt something a little strange in my thigh. The doctor told me that there was something not very important but that I needed two or three weeks of rest. Now I feel fine”.
“It was Pablo Longoria who decided to change the goalkeeping coach”
“It was he who decided and we have to respect him. I know Jon Pascua from Betis. He asks me a lot and that suits me”.
About the Nice-OM derby, one year after the events
“It will be a game that will be very difficult. We will have to forget last season. They are very good for us to know if we are on the right line. I think the team has a good dynamic and a good mentality to play.” That game.”
About the Champions League draw
“It will always be difficult. There are no easy teams in the Champions League. Every match will be very difficult and if we want to do anything in this competition, we will have to have this mentality.”
Before Igor Tudor, there will be goalkeeper Pau López in conf
Start in a few minutes
Hello and welcome to this press conference.
The time for the remake has come: OM travels to Nice on Sunday (without their fans) a year after the match was interrupted by violence between Nice fans and Marseille players. We will also talk about the Champions League in this press conference as Marseille have recovered a potentially accessible group in the draw, which is not an easy task when you are in hat 4. Start of the press conference at 4:15 p.m. .
