Zero points. Last night, Olympique de Marseille was again beaten in the Champions League. This time, Eintracht Frankfurt won 2-0 at the Orange Vélodrome. A disappointment for Igor Tudor, who had chosen to align Dimitri Payet and Gerson in support of Alexis Sanchez. And it didn’t pay off. Moreover, the Frenchman has been getting expensive since last night. On the set of Moscato Show on RMC SportsEric Di Meco, former OM player and consultant, has paid the former LOSC player, as well as his Brazilian teammate.
“Of course he (Igor Tudor, editor’s note) has a share of the responsibility since he has been praised from the start. We even praised him in the last match with fairly early changes and therefore an influence on the game. So there, we have to say that he was wrong. On his choices, where I understand what he is doing is that let us remember that he was whistled when he had not yet coached a minute because he had put Payet on the bench, because that he hadn’t played Bamba Dieng… This question about Payet in every match that God does, every press conference that God does, we ask him why he is not on the field. We have the answer. At one point, I was told that he hadn’t played for 15 days and that he might not be on his feet. If he plays every three days, we will be told that he is too leggy and too tired. Last night, Tudor explained to us that they were tired. Which can be understood. The problem is that when you see the striker’s two supports (Harit and Ünder) what they did on Saturday night in the defensive withdrawal, the commitment and the rhythm, I’m not sure that Payet and Gerson are able to do so. Not having Guendouzi on the pitch yesterday hurt me (…) Payet behind Alexis Sanchez, we had to see him. Besides, he had announced it. But the problem is that it is not possible to put the rhythm that Tudor wants to put. Payet, we do not take away from him everything he has done for OM. But he never put rhythm and percussion. As Vincent Moscato says, when Gerson plays, she looks like my grandmother. He was good at the end of the season, but we looked for him for 6 months. He goes two an hour too. Everyone cries because they have to be put on and when they are on the pitch, well, we see it. When it goes to the next level, we see it. The only one who was good last night was Bailly”.
