Having left for Mexico to join the Monterrey Tigers, Florian Thauvin explained the reasons for his departure from OM, who offered him a great offer.
After eight years at OM, Florian Thauvin decided to go far from the Marseille city by joining Mexico and the Tigres de Monterrey. While he had the opportunity to extend his contract, the 2018 World Champion has revealed the reasons for his departure to Latin America.
OM proposed “a big offer”
“I didn’t feel good at the club. I didn’t feel good in my life, my life changed a lot because my son arrived, so I needed a change of life, he told Mexican media Multimedia. I spoke with my wife, life in Marseille is very good, but there are things I couldn’t do, like going out for a walk, there is a lot of pressure“.
The 28-year-old also explained that he could have stayed in Europe this summer, but the Tigers’ offer would have convinced him. “We spoke with Milan since September, I had an offer from Paolo Maldini in January, then Marseille made me a very big offer, but also Lyon, Atlético de Madrid, then the Tigers came and that’s where it happened. “
