The now ex-Marseille Florian Thauvin was received as a rockstar in Mexico, the place of his future exploits.
Florian Thauvin will make the heyday of the Monterrey Tigers after having long defended the colors of Olympique de Marseille. In Aztec soil, he is already very popular, without even having stepped on the lawns of La Liga MX. The tricolor international saw it Thursday night when he landed in the Mexican city.
