And he assures that OM have made a nice move.

Arrived with fanfare Tuesday in Marseille, Vitinha (22 years old) is the new goalscorer so desired by theOM during the period of transfer window of January. The Portuguese was welcomed with great enthusiasm by the Marseille supporters, he who becomes the most expensive recruit in the history of the club (32M€). And Rolandowho wore the colors of OM between 2015 and 2019 before heading to Braga where he crossed paths with Vitinhais full of praise for him.

“He will succeed in Marseille”

Asked by RMC, Rolando praised the merits of the new scorer of theOM : “ As a man, I can tell you that OM were not mistaken. I want to start there, I know him he’s a kid, but I liked him. I’ve been around him for two years and he’s a good guy and a great gentleman. The player has a very good striking ability. He learned a lot during his time at Braga because he didn’t go through big training centers. Athletically, he is very strong and he is a player who, as Marseille fans like, wets the shirt and never stops, he gives everything and I think he will succeed in Marseille “, entrusts Rolando.

“He’ll get there, I’m sure of it”

The former playerOM continues on Vitinha : “ Is it adaptable to the Tudor style? I think so because when I watch OM’s matches, even the tactical plan, it’s a bit the same as what was done the last two years in Braga. And after, the player profile that Tudor wants is a player who presses a lot, who plays forward and who never stops. He has technical quality and then he will adapt to France, it’s not the same football. But since he’s young, he should need some time, but he’ll get there, I’m sure. “. That is clear.
