Nuno Tavares Rennes OM

OM won on the ground of Reims (2-1), Sunday, on behalf of the 28e Ligue 1 day. A major success as Igor Tudor’s team was put under pressure by Lens and Monaco. But all was not perfect, and Eric Di Meco pointed it out. The former terror of French lawns once again did not appreciate the performance provided by Nuno Tavares.

“I have a special look at him, because I know the job”

At the microphone of RMC Sports, the former left-back attacked his successor. The native of Avignon no longer supports the nonchalance of the Portuguese: “With an Alexis Sanchez by his side, Nuno Tavares does not realize that he has an example of what to do on a pitch. When he loses a ball, he stops! There, it’s not even frustration anymore. When you see Sanchez and the others trying so hard, he just stops and falls behind in scoring. I have a particular eye on him, because I know the position. When he takes 10 seconds before getting back on his feet, that’s the kind of thing that puts you in difficulty in a match like the one in Reims. When it’s difficult, he’s one of the weak links.”he launched.

This season, the player has taken part in 36 matches in all competitions. The native of Lisbon notably scored 6 goals in 24 appearances in Ligue 1. He did not, however, play a single assist.

As a reminder, Nuno Tavares is on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season. His contract with the Gunners runs until June 2025 and OM do not have a purchase option to keep him. The Marseille leaders should not open negotiations to keep him.
