Bamba Dieng was a player full of promise for OM. However, his Marseille adventure ended this winter with his transfer to Lorient. Nevertheless, his departure should have taken place last summer and Leeds, through its president, delivered on his bitter failure.
He was the hit of summer 2022 and winter 2023 at the‘om, but not for his athletic performance. Indeed, while he was nicknamed on his debut with the Marseille club as the “new Didier Drogba”, Bamba Dieng became much more discreet last season and was even pushed out by the president of the‘om, to know pablo Longoria. Eventually, Dieng left Olympique de Marseille for the heart rate Lorient this winter.
Dieng is in Lorient, but was due to join Leeds or Nice
However, the transfer of Bamba Dieng could and especially should have taken place in the last off-season. On the last day of the summer transfer window of 2022, Dieng was going to fly away Leeds in order to engage with the English club. Nevertheless, the Senegalese had stayed at the airport for a while due to a turnaround and a transfer in favor of OGC Nicewhich fell through at the very last moment.

Leeds weren’t ready for their failure with Dieng
President of Leeds, andrea Radrizzani confided in DAZN and in comments reported by TMW on the surprising failure of the English for the transfer of Bamba Dieng. “This market has been crazy. On the last day we got Bamba from Marseille, I even tweeted, but then he didn’t get off the plane. I ask Orta what happened and he tells me he didn’t want to leave, finally he goes to Nice and we anticipate Gnonto’s arrival which was only planned for January. Thank God I’m very proud of him. Then Bamba did not spend the visits with Nice and stayed in Marseille”.
