Scorer on the first, second and fourth day of Ligue 1, Nuno Tavares (23) was quick to make a name for himself and a place in the Olympian squad. Attractive, the Portuguese left piston, as whimsical as it is decisive, thus proved to Igor Tudor that he could settle permanently in the Marseille eleven, which is moreover thanks to his versatility and this ability to evolve on the right side. Yes, but now, for several weeks, the former Gunners player, on loan without an option to buy, has been going through a much darker period in Marseille and has displayed a much less rosy face.

Overwhelmed by events during the Classic against PSG (0-3), failed in the fateful penalty shootout against Annecy in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, the native of Lisbon made a new disastrous copy in Breton lands, Sunday evening on the occasion of the 26th day of Ligue 1. Indeed, if OM, more than ever runner-up to the Parisians, carried out a very good accounting operation – Igor Tudor’s men now have 4 lengths ahead of AS Monaco and RC Lens – the Portuguese’s performance (21 lost balls) was clearly not up to this important meeting.

Benefits in decline!

Often praised for his attacking qualities, the number 30 of the Phocaeans has once again shown his limits. Connected to alternating current, with a propensity for relaxation, he was thus distinguished by numerous defensive wanderings and too much technical waste at this level.

Observed across the Channel, the one who sees his contract run until 2025 on the Arsenal side therefore also finds himself in the sights of the Marseillais. Far too lax in his lane, Tavares is thus often taken behind his back and his defensive shortcomings play tricks on Igor Tudor’s men, what’s more when Chancel Mbemba is not there to compensate (during the Classic in particular).

The question of its future arises!

“He lost his mind, he will take a nice fine. It can happen, but he will be fined, because it will penalize us for the future. We are lucky that it went well at the end of the match., also railed the Croatian technician about his defender, expelled for a violent brush on Arnaud Souquet during the 17th day against Montpellier. Launched into a final sprint, OM will indeed have to find a Nuno Tavares to his full potential to avoid stupidly losing points in this race for second place. While waiting for a reaction, the 23-year-old Portuguese will also have to settle the question of his future…

As a reminder, the one who has 6 goals in 30 matches in all competitions is on loan until the end of the season but should not make old bones on the London side. Recently, our Spanish colleagues from Sport also indicated that the Gunners would like to part with him in order to bring in cash and thus be able to recruit a little more easily next summer. “I feel good here with the players and with the coach but I can’t predict the future so, for now, I can’t tell you what will happen”, assured, for his part, the person concerned in a recent press conference.
