Following the departure of Gerson at the start of the winter transfer window, OM had considerably bailed out their coffers. Thus, Pablo Longoria had taken advantage of it by recruiting Vitinha and Azzedine Ounahi in particular. But since they arrived, they haven’t played. A situation that questions Daniel Riolo who points the finger at the management of Igor Tudor with the two recruits.
I’OM had a rough winter. The Marseille club has recorded three new arrivals by signing Vitinha, Azzedine Ounahi And Ruslan Malinovskyi. If the Ukrainian enjoys considerable playing time, this is not the case for his two other teammates. Against PSG this Sunday evening, Vitinha And Ounahi entered at the end of the game but they once again did not have enough time to show themselves. A recurring phenomenon for several matches. And given the cost that their visits represent, this poses a problem. Daniel Riolo does not understand their treatment.

Vitinha and Ounahi are not indispensable in the eyes of Tudor
Since they joined theOM, Vitinha And Azzedine Ounahi do not benefit from a huge playing time. The Portuguese striker had experienced a very difficult first against OGC Nice and he has since settled for 6 minutes against Clermontand 9 against the PSG this Sunday. Arrived a little earlier, the Moroccan midfielder has 88 minutes in the Marseille jersey. Too little when you know that OM paid 42M€ to buy them.
“What are they for?”
Daniel Riolo even wonders why they were recruited. ” It is February 26, we will still have to ask ourselves the question of Vitinha. He came for 30M€ the guy. I don’t mind if we don’t see him the first week… The second week, we don’t see him. Why did he come anyway? There is a problem ? Did they realize in training that it was a banana? I am still very surprised at what is happening with this player, and the same for Ounahi. What are they for? The two recruits are hardly used “, he dropped in After Football on RMC.
