Igor Tudor, the charismatic coach of Olympique de Marseille (Ligue 1), praised Chancel Mbemba and Issa Kaboré on Friday.
Ranked 2nd in the championship, the Olympians are on track to compete in the Champions League once again. A season in whichCongolese international Chancel Mbemba participates actively. The 28-year-old central defender has indeed played 39 games in all competitions, while presenting an honorable statistics sheet for a defender (6 goals). If he had disappeared from the starting XI for a few weeks, he recently resumed his starting position. On the sidelines of the Olympico against Lyon this Sunday, the rock was in any case praised by his coach Igor Tudor at a press conference “The most important motivation is that which comes from the soul of everyone’s heart. This desire to win can be transmitted by the coach. But it is the individual motivation of each player that matters most. Chancel is having a very good season and has very good results.”
Despite competition from incumbent Jonathan Clauss, Issa Kaboré, cousin of Charles who has recently spoken about it, also shows interesting things for his first season under the tunic of OM. Aged only 21, the right side burkinabe still made 21 TCC appearances. Igor Tudor particularly congratulated him on his last match against Troyes (3-1): “He was one of the best on the field last time. It’s the kind of players I like, those who don’t necessarily play all the time but who put me in difficulty on the tenure. The doors are open for all players, one way or the other.e”.
Chancel Mbemba: “I have no pressure in life. The most important thing on the pitch is to please others. I don’t know about the other players. I play normally, naturally, without forcing, it goes like that. To transmit, it is not easy. » pic.twitter.com/xTr1ozjFZM

Champions League goal
Tudor did not speak on the other hand about the Moroccans Harit and Ounahi, currently injured. With 64 points on their counter and while there are still seven days left, the Canebière players seem too far from the Paris Saint Germain (72 points) to win the title of Champion of France. The end of the championship is not without challenges for the Marseillais, who will do everything to keep their second place and thus obtain their direct qualification for the cup with big ears. The Lensois, who monopolize just behind with two fewer units on the clock, will be on the lookout for the slightest misstep by Igor Tudor’s men. On May 6, the two teams will face each other in a clash at the top for second place. The Bollaert Stadium, already very hot in normal times, risks being boiling…
