Scorer in the victory against Rennes (1-0) on Wednesday, Michaël Cuisance (21) says he is already seduced by Jorge Sampaoli, new OM coach, whose offensive approach he praises.
Michaël Cuisance will remain as the first scorer of the Sampaoli era at OM. And no one could really expect it. Loaned with an option to purchase by Bayern since the start of the season, the young midfielder (21) is struggling to find a place in the Marseille collective. He has only started once in his team’s last ten games in all competitions. But he took advantage of his entry into play Wednesday against Rennes (1-0) to score his first goal under the Marseille colors and offer a first success to the new Argentine coach.
“It’s a relief, it feels good, confides the former Strasbourg resident at the microphone of Canal +. We have a lot of work to do with the coach and the new system which will help us a lot. We will attack and score a lot more, which will give us confidence. “
“He likes to attack and score. What’s better than that?”
After three days of work with the new technician, the midfielder is already seduced. “He’s a coach that every player likes to have because he likes to attack and score, he continues. What is better in football than attacking and scoring? ‘We’re having fun. It’s not a short-term job, it doesn’t come together so easily. He’s only been with us for three days. He has been able to re-motivate us. “
Thanks to this success, Marseille came back to two points behind Lens, 5th. “We should not focus on others, but on us, warns Cuisance, whose future on La Canebière remains uncertain. But Sampaoli will closely follow his development.” He is a player that we have followed and studied before moving on. come, said the Argentine technician at a press conference. He has a lot of qualities. He is currently linked to the club on loan. Today he came in well and scored on Luis (Henrique) action from the side. For us, this is a start, we have constant and daily exchanges. He is also thinking and if, with the qualities he has, he has total involvement with the jersey, he will certainly be closer (to stay, editor’s note). “
