Is it the guaranteed flop for OM in the transfer window?


OM continue to strengthen during this winter transfer window. After Ruslan Malinvoskyi, it is therefore Azzedine Ounahi who joins the Marseille club. But in recent winter windows, rookies have not been synonymous with success. Several of them are also huge flops. Le 10 Sport retraces OM’s bad picks in winter.

No 9th rank success for OM but a new recruit, the second of this winter transfer window. Azzedine Ounahi must sign his contract in the Marseille city, a few weeks later Ruslan Malinovskyi. Hoping for them that the curse does not touch them because the last transfers of OM during the winter transfer window were not very successful.

Inevitable flops

OM does not keep good memories of its winter recruits. In January 2017, Patrice Evra joined for free OM at 37 years old. An experienced profile certainly, but a strong character, too much for OM. In November of that same year, the two parties separated by mutual agreement following the skid from Evra who had given a high-kick to a supporter of OM.

In the radius of the flops we also find Olivier Ntcham. When he arrives on loan in 2021, he remains on successful seasons with the Celtic Glasgow and stands ready to cross a course, in vain. His coming is a bitter failure. He will never have played more than 45 minutes per game with OM.

To a lesser extent because we expected less than ntchamwe find Steven Fletcher. The Scot had arrived to strengthen the Olympian attack but he had not imposed himself at the forefront of the attack either. Same story for Gregory Serticthe big casting mistake of OM. In three years, he will only have played 25 games with OM, all while receiving an excessive salary. 25 games more than Franco Tongyaexchanged with Marley Ake to the Juventus Torino. The young Italian has never been used with the pros.

They could have done better

Last season, Cedric Bakambu come free to Marseilles. The Congolese had been able to be decisive, not enough for Pablo Longoria keep it. Arek Milik also keep a good track record with OM but the injuries of the Pole, landed in January 2021, have slowed down his adaptation too much. Mario Balotelli had a good six months at OM scoring 8 goals in League 1. But his adventure remains on a taste of unfinished business.

The thundering beginnings of Pol Lirola also contrast with what it has become today, an undesirable whose OM tries to get rid of. The Spanish side remains one of the great satisfactions of OM for a winter transfer window with its 6 excellent first months in 2021. Conversely, it was much more complicated at the start for Sead Kolasinac, arrived last January. From now on, the Bosnian has adapted and has become one of the essential parts of the machine You sleep. Mitigated this assessment for the OM.
