While his contract expires at the end of the season, Florian Thauvin could return to Olympique de Marseille. And Jorge Sampaoli would be no stranger to it.
Since the arrival of Jorge Sampaoli in Marseille, Florian Thauvin goes through all the emotions. On the ground, the world champion is lugged around to new positions, with a rather disconcerting role of midfielder given his natural attributes as a “false foot” winger. But if these innovations of Sampaoli may surprise, the Argentine technician holds the left-hander in high esteem in the construction of his future squad.
Sampaoli wants to keep Thauvin!
According to information from RMC, Jorge Sampaoli would have helped to reverse the trend of a scheduled departure next summer. As a reminder, Florian Thauvin sees his current lease expire in June. The attacker still has not stacked up. But this extension could take place in the coming weeks – an outcome that was still difficult to imagine a few months ago. The French media specifies that Sampaoli very quickly asked its president Pablo Sarabia that Florian Thauvin is still Marseille for the 2021-22 season. Forced to rebuild a large part of his workforce, the OM coach wants to rely on his sure values. Discussions between the management of OM and the player’s clan would have resumed.
