For OM’s big debut in Ligue 1, this Sunday evening at the Vélodrome against Reims, Igor Tudor has decided to put on Dimitri Payet. A hell of a thunderclap.
” Dimitri Payet never asked to see the president of OM. There was no meeting requested, neither on my part nor on that of the other players for that matter (…) I know that Dimitri Payet sells, a lot apparently. Once again, we tried to destabilize him again. But as internally, everything is clear, there were no worries, fortunately. This Friday, the Marseille playmaker wanted to set the record straight, denying the fact that last week, in the wake of the friendly defeat against AC Milan, he had asked for a meeting with Pablo Longoria and Igor Tudor, in order to puncture the abscess. But whatever it is, it seems that the Croatian coach of Olympique de Marseille only wants to do as he pleases. Indeed, L’Equipe announces that for the first match of the Ligue 1 championship, this Sunday in a once again full Vélodrome, Tudor has decided to leave Dimitri Payet on the bench at the start of the match against Reims Stadium. To see how OM supporters will take this news, the Reunionese player being part of the team that finished second to PSG last season.
