Consultant on RMC in the Rothen Flames program, Juninho appreciated OM’s performance on Tuesday against Sporting. The former Lyon sporting director highlighted the beautiful match of several Marseille including one in particular!
If Juninho appreciated Balerdi and Mbemba’s level of play, he insisted on emphasizing Alexis Sanchez’s champion attitude.
Sanchez, for me, is a really great player
“Congratulations to Marseille! Sanchez, for me, is a really great player. Yesterday’s attitude, the first goal he will chase, not all forwards do it. He moves every time, he defends himself, he doesn’t let go. He is a champion. We thought it was at the end of his career, but not for nothing. (…) I liked Marseille very much. I felt that some players were much more relaxed than with the fans. Balerdi, Mbemba… Also Veretout. I felt a little more liberated yesterday. Marseille have a good team ”.

Alexis Sanchez started on Tuesday night against Sporting in the Champions League. Good performance by the Chilean who particularly scored Bernard Casoni, interviewed by L’Equipe.
“Adan gave OM the opportunity to return, yes. Then you had to know how to take advantage of it. A guy like Alexis Sanchez is of the highest level. He never gives up and that is the Champions League. He does not give up, he is present in every action. Going to press the goalkeeper, he catches a defender, but continues his run. In the 86th Sanchez continued to press. He pushes guilt. If he doesn’t do this by insisting that others don’t, Adan isn’t making him his mistake. And behind it we don’t know what’s going on. Because this mistake after this pressure from Sanchez changes everything, the goalkeeper loses confidence, even his defense. Everything turns, because the boy has not resigned himself, he went for the goal, he believed in it. And he put OM back into play. On what he has to face, he really is the best rookie of the summer. By the 86th minute, he was pressing again! ” Bernard Casoni – Source: The team (05/10/22)
