Amine Harit’s loan back to Olympique Marseille on Deadline Day was a real heartbeat finale. Schalke 04 wanted to make sure that the Obligation to buy more than five million euros ultimately works – and prevailed.
Now Harit is well on the way to making himself a bargain. The attacking midfielder is more and more often in the OM starting line-up – as was the case on Tuesday in the Champions League against Sporting Lisbon (4:1).
Harit the man of the match
Harit delivered: his header goal in the 16th minute was followed twelve pointer turns later by a corner on the head of goal scorer Leonardo Balerdi.
Harit was subsequently voted player of the game by UEFA and the readers of the local newspaper ‘La Provence’. Josué Cassé from the FT-affiliate site Foot Market says about Harit: “Since his return he has brought life to the game of OM. Not only against Sporting, but also against Tottenham.” If Harit continues like this, the 15 missions required for the purchase obligation should be reached very soon.
