Left OM last summer, Maxime Lopez admits to living “a resurrection” since his arrival in Sassuolo, where he won in the midfield.
Trained at OM and promised a good progression within the Marseille club, Maxime Lopez finally took the direction of Italy to commit to Sassuolo during the last summer transfer window. The 23-year-old midfielder quickly established himself in the midfield of the Serie A club (33 games played) and does not regret having left Marseille.
Lopez is progressing better than OM
” It’s kind of a resurrection. I’m young but in Marseille, I didn’t play at all, I was starting to slip into oblivion (…) I’m very happy with my season individually. I find that I progressed on the defensive side, he explained to the media Maritima. Before, I had a tendency to want to go everywhere on the ground, go right to left, and now I’ve been taught that instead of doing ten meters to the right, for example, I stay there to be able to recover the ball. I recover a lot more than in Marseille and I defend better. I tended to make a lot of mistakes, but I do a lot less, ”admitted the young midfielder.
