Pol Lirola turned into the savior of OM this Saturday against Lorient, scoring a double including a goal in added time to offer victory to the players of Jorge Sampaoli (3-2). Loaned with an option to purchase by Fiorentina since January, the Spaniard admitted at a press conference that he hoped to be part of the long term with the Marseille club.

“I have said it several times already, it’s something that is not up to me, he explained about a permanent transfer. But I am serene, since I am here, I play all the games thoroughly to try to convince the club that they can bet on me. This is something that we will see this summer, during the transfer window. But I would love to stay here. “
