Bailly on the return
Author of a dangerous kick in French Cup in front of Hyeres at the beginning of January, Bailly had been suspended for seven matches. The player has served his sentence and could return against Clermont this Saturday. “ He will be in the group. He brings a plus in a game sector where other players have performed well. It will take him some time to regain his rhythm. » confided Igor Tudor, coach of theOM.
The trend is towards a departure
While awaiting his return, the leaders of theOM have had time to reflect on its future. The Marseille club would still hesitate to exercise its purchase option, estimated at 7M€. According The Team, it seems, today, illusory to see Pablo Longoria spend this amount at the end of the season. In other words, Bailly will have to prove itself in the coming months and earn its place.
