Football: Pablo Longoria, the president of OM, judges the Jonathan Clauss case now “closed”

After a cabal against his own player, Pablo Longoria now decides to calm things down. Last month, Jonathan Clauss was publicly criticized by the president of Olympique de Marseille, but also by the club’s sports advisor, Medhi Benatia. In an interview published by the Spanish media As this Thursday, Pablo Longoria decided to close this chapter.

“The Clauss chapter is closed. This happened at a time when the team had many players at the African Cup of Nations, many injured players, the OM president justified. The basis of this month of January had to be the maximum commitment of all the people around the team. »

Among the criticisms made against Jonathan Clauss, the most important was his lack of investment. The Marseille leaders felt that he did not have the attitude of a leader. At the microphone of Canal +, Medhi Benatia did not spare his player: “I know that he had been received several times in the coach’s office to explain to him what was expected of him a little bit, in the attitude , as leader, French international. We thought the message had gotten through, unfortunately, it wasn’t. »

A charge misunderstood by Jonathan Clauss and his entourage. At the very end of the winter transfer window, in January, the Marseille club also tried to transfer him. But the French international, opposed to leaving, ultimately remained in Bouches-du-Rhône.

“The only thing we want is the maximum performance of Jonathan Clauss in order to achieve the collective objectives that we have and his, like that of going to the Euro,” finally promised Pablo Longoria.
