Thierry Henry was not tender with Leonardo Balerdi, guilty in his eyes on the third Nice goal, Sunday, during the defeat of OM against Nice.
Olympique de Marseille fell from above on Sunday. While they remained on a good series of ten matches without defeat, the Ciel et Blancs fell at home against OGC Nice. A defeat that highlighted certain defensive shortcomings. Pau Lopez was not imperial on the first two goals, not helped by a central hinge that was long to react, and Lucas Balerdi was no more inspired on the Aiglons’ third goal.
Present in Marseille, Thierry Henry did not spare the Argentine defender, too passive for his taste against Bilal Brahimi, who was able to calmly wrap his shot at the corner of the surface. “At the moment, I see that Brahimi rolls up his shot and I wonder when he rolls up since the ball never went around the defender, the Prime Video consultant was surprised. But if you position yourself like that, for me, it’s unacceptable! You defend the ball and your goal. In fact there is no one, it’s a one against one (against Pau Lopez) “launched the former world champion at the microphone of Prime Video.
He withdrew like he was letting the bus pass
“Be careful, this is not an attack, it is a fact. Even if it was my father, I would have said the same thing: ‘but what are you doing?’, he added. He withdrew as if letting the bus pass! Stand up straight, force him to pass you, shoot between the legs like Mbappé does or bring him to his right foot. »
Asked after the meeting, Igor Tudor was careful not to incriminate his players. “It was a tough match against a good opponent, who is going through a good time. I can’t say anything to the boys. They pushed, they tried. We played the game but unfortunately we weren’t good enough.”he confided, adding: “I think it’s normal when playing like that to concede chances. But I don’t think we conceded enough to concede three goals. »
