OM: Balerdi, an evening in hell! – Soccer

Released in the 28th minute by his coach Igor Tudor, the central defender of Olympique de Marseille Leonardo Balerdi had a nightmarish evening against Lille (2-1) on Saturday in Ligue 1. In immense difficulty on the sporting level, the Argentinian , furious, also suffered the bronca of the public of the Stade Vlodrome.

Leonardo Balerdi n’a pas apprci sa sortie…

Since the start of the season, there has been one constant at Olympique de Marseille: coach Igor Tudor does not have the slightest feeling. Particularly authoritarian in his choices, the Croatian technician is not afraid to make strong decisions.

In the 28th minute of the match against Lille (2-1), just after Alexis Sanchez’s equaliser, the OM coach took out central defender Leonardo Balerdi, furious when he joined the bench and replaced by Nuno Tavares.

Balerdi was silent in the street…

Not 2/10 by the editorial staff of Maxifoot (see Dbrief and Notes here), the Argentinian had a nightmarish start to the match. Already at the limit on a clumsy intervention in the area on Adam Ounas, the former Borussia Dortmund player literally took the water in his area with Sead Kolasinac, initially in a piston role. In suffering, the duo was also totally at fault on the opening of the score of Ismaily.

And despite Tudor’s strong remonstrances, this tandem was not able to raise their heads. Cold, the ex-coach of Hellas Vrone therefore acted with the entry of Tavares and the repositioning of Kolasinac in the axis. With an immediate effect: a renewed solidity within the defensive sector and especially a corridor now dominated by the Portuguese. A strong and therefore winning choice.

Tudor dsol for the Argentinian

However, Tudor cannot afford to lose the 23-year-old mentally. With the important sequence of matches to come, Balerdi will have to render services over the next few weeks. And after the bronca of the public of the Velodrome towards the native of Villa Mercedes, the Croatian technician defended him. I’m really sorry for what happened. Lo is a fantastic player, let’s start with a. I don’t like what happened on the way out. He’s a fantastic personhe insisted on Canal +, before justifying this decision.

I felt that it had to be taken out because there was a risk of taking a second yellow and I told my assistant that, despite the coming half-time, it had to be taken out. I told him moreover that it was not because of his game, but rather because of the yellow card. Sometimes I do that when we have the chance to make 5 changes, but he doesn’t need to think too much about that, he’s a fantastic player, Tudor said. A simple speech of faade? Because there was really nothing fantastic about Balerdi’s performance…
