RMC consultant in the program Rothen lights, Juninho valued the performance of OM on Tuesday against Sporting. The former sports director of Lyon underlined the good performance of several Marseilles, including one in particular!
If Juninho appreciated the level of play of Balerdi and Mbemba, he insisted on emphasizing Alexis Sánchez’s champion attitude.
Sánchez, for me, is really a great player.
“Congratulations to Marseille! Sánchez, for me, is a great player. The attitude that he had yesterday, the first goal that he is going to chase, that is not what all the attackers do. He moves every time, he defends, he doesn’t let go. He is a champion. We thought he was at the end of his career, but not quite. (…) I really liked Marseille. I felt that some players were much more relaxed than with the fans. Balerdi, Mbemba… Even Veretout. I felt a little more liberated yesterday. Marseille have a good team”.

Alexis Sánchez started against Sporting this Tuesday night in the Champions League. The Chilean put in a good performance that especially marked Bernard Casoni, interviewed by L’Equipe.
“Adam gave OM a chance to come back, yes. So you had to know how to take advantage of it. A guy like Alexis Sánchez has a very, very high level. He never gives up and the Champions League is that. He does not give up, he is present in every action. Going to pressure the goalkeeper, he takes out a defender, but he follows his run. In ’86, Sánchez kept pressing. He pushes the blame. If he doesn’t do this pressure that others don’t, Adam is not making his mistake. And behind we don’t know what’s going on. Because this mistake after this pressure from Sánchez changes everything, the goalkeeper loses confidence, his defense too. Everything turns around, because the guy does not resign himself, he went for the goal, he believed in it. And he put OM back in the game. As far as he goes, he really is the best rookie of the summer. In the 86th minute, he was pressing again! » Bernardo Casoni – Source: The Team (05/10/22)
