In difficulty since the beginning of the year, Jonathan Clauss finds a new one which allows him to apply again for the France team, believes Igor Tudor.
There is better Marseille side! After the pitiful 0-0 in Lorient, OM held their rank on Sunday evening, quietly dominating a weak team from Troyes (3-1) at the Vélodrome. While the entire Marseille collective is looking for a second wind this spring, Igor Tudor underlined the good performance of Jonathan Clauss.
Not selected for the 2022 World Cup despite an excellent first part of the season, the former Lensois had suffered since the start of the calendar year. Injured in January, Clauss chained several disappointing performances in February and March. Aligned on the left against Troyes, the piston gave satisfaction to his trainer.
Clauss on an international level
“He is a player who has the ability to play on both sides, and that does not change anything for him, confided the Croatian technician after the meeting, reports RMC. It’s important to see the level at which he plays. During the last two games, he played at his level, that is to say that of player of the France team. Before that, it is true that he was a little below his performance. I hope he will be able to play the last seven games with consistency and at his level. That’s what it takes if he wants to return to the national team. »
Didier Deschamps will no doubt appreciate seeing Jonathan Clauss recover his colors, but the situation of the former Lensois seems a little more complex. The Olympian piston had been penalized by the return to a four-defender system for the 2022 World Cup, and as long as the coach of the Blues favors this pattern of play, his horizon will be blocked.
