The Moroccan international, Azeddine Ounahi, disappointed for his first tenure with Marseille. The local press did not spare him.

Ounahi, OM’s weak link
After the match, the Olympians were praised for their surge. However, some players didn’t get many compliments. Out at break the Moroccan Azeddine Ounahi symbolizes the upside down half-time achieved by his team.
Holder for the first time since his arrival from Angers during the transfer window, Ounahi failed to score points. This Monday, in the regional press, he was singled out for his poor performance. “He didn’t bring much. He dezoned, sometimes, to try to bring danger. But he disappeared over the minutes, experiencing the worst difficulties in responding to the physical challenge imposed by the TFC and existed in the game advocated by Tudor. Logically replaced at the break by Malinovskyi, whose entry did a lot of good ”, could we read in the columns of La Provence. For his match against the Violets, Ounahi was entitled to a note 3 in this newspaper.
In his defense, Ounahi has not really evolved in his real position. One of the revelations of the World Cup was lined up just behind Alexis Sanchez, while he is a midfielder at the base. His coach did not dwell on his performance at the final whistle, but he admitted to the Amazon Prime microphone that some of his players were not at their true level.
