As anticipated in recent days and confirmed by Pablo Longoria on Tuesday, Lucas Perrin officially committed this Wednesday with Strasbourg, in the form of a loan with a purchase option. Little used at OM, the central defender wants to revive in Alsace.
Pablo Longoria had already announced it on Tuesday but it is now official: Lucas Perrin will play this season with Strasbourg. The 22-year-old center-back has signed up for a season with RCSA, in the form of a loan with an option to buy, estimated at 1.5 million euros.
I really enjoyed my exchange with the coach “
Trained at OM, this pure product of Marseille training made his debut in Ligue 1 on September 24, 2019, against Dijon. “The direct consequence of the arrival of William Saliba and Luan Peres is the departure of Lucas Perrin in Strasbourg, Longoria said Tuesday at a press conference. He is an extraordinary boy who loves the club, trained in center. I wish him a very good season. “

In Strasbourg, Lucas Perrin will play under the orders of Julien Stéphan, who replaced Thierry Laurey. “I am in Strasbourg to rediscover pleasure and to continue the matches, commented Lucas Perrin.

I am very happy to join Racing, I really enjoyed my exchange with the coach and the coherent and ambitious project that was presented to me. “
Since the start of his career, Lucas Perrin has played only 11 games for OM. “Lucas is a strong player in duels, gifted in relaunching and with a good head game, explained Loïc Désiré, recruiting manager in Strasbourg. He has always performed well with OM despite his poor playing time. . “
