After four seasons in China, Cédric Bakambu chose OM because he wanted “a purely sporting challenge,” the new Marseille striker explained to AFP on Friday. “When my agent offered me OM, I immediately hooked. I told him: “This is what I want” “, explains” Bakamgoal “. The player trained at FC Sochaux and passed by Bursaspor and Villarreal will not be qualified to face Losc this Sunday.
During his presentation this Friday, the player recalled knowing Pablo Longoria “for quite a few years”, with whom he “had a good feeling”. “I grew up in France, I played in Sochaux,” Cédric Bakambu recalled. I had in a corner of my head to return to L1. Better late than never. “
On his state of form when he has not played since November with the Democratic Republic of the Congo – and since August 2021 with BJ Guon in the Chinese league – the player understands the “doubts”. ” It’s normal […] but I have confidence in myself, I know what I’m worth. I know the L1, I know that it is the very high level and that it is a difficult championship. I am here to help the team, I arrive in all modesty. “And to score goals also hope the Marseille fans.
