OM: Sampaoli seeks solution for Milik

by archysport

Without Arkadiusz Milik (27 years old, 12 games and 4 goals in all competitions this season), Olympique de Marseille seemed more comfortable collectively against Nantes (1-0) on Wednesday. The use of Dimitri Payet in false number 9, as at the start of the season, offers more fluidity in the Marseille game.

“Yes it’s different with him, Jorge Sampaoli admitted at a press conference. But as with all the numbers 9 with different capacities from those of Dimitri Payet. Payet is an attacking midfielder who plays higher and helps at a different height on the field and that helps the whole offensive volume of the team, we are closer when we settle in the opposing camp and when we have a loss of ball. “

The Marseille coach, however, intends to find a solution to tactically advance his team with the presence of the Polish center forward. “We have to find this complementarity so that the team does not lose in the game when they play with a 9,” said the Argentinian. The opportunity could arise this Saturday (5 p.m.) at the reception of Brest, since Payet, absent from training this Friday, is uncertain for this meeting (see the brief of 3:39).
