The coach of Olympique de Marseille has mentioned the case Luiz Gustavo, which could almost be described as sensitive subject for the technician. Indeed, the OM coach wants to keep the defensive midfielder, but the determination of the player and Fenerbahçe rather suggests an imminent transfer. As a result, Villas-Boas can not guarantee the presence of the Brazilian this weekend.
" Luiz Gustavo is like the Nice match. There has been an evolution of Fenerbahce's proposal. I let Jacques-Henri and Andoni take care of that. I can always count on his professionalism. We will wait for the evolution of the negotiations. If I think he can help the team, I'll put him ", Said the Portuguese, before commenting on the transfer window of OM in general. Left to put a new blow on the fans' heads.
Big transfers, it's a thing of the past
" The financial situation of OM, I knew it before my arrival. Sign players at 15 or 20 million euros, it's all oversaid the former Tottenham manager. We were waiting for offers for our players, which could have given flexibility on our transfer window. But in the end I'm happy because the good players are still there. It remains to be seen whether Marseille has a workforce that lives up to its ambitions.
