Zapping Goal! soccer club OM – GOAL INFO! : an ex back home?
If he assures that he does not blame former President Jacques-Henri Eyraud for the management of his case, Florian Thauvin, in exile in Mexico for a year, does not hide the responsibility of the former right arm of Frank McCourt in his failed exit:
“He was the president of the club when I had one year left on my contract. I pushed for a long time for an extension. The president did not advance on this subject. I especially think that, when I was coming out of my very high seasons, especially after the World Cup, he asked 80 M€ for me. It was way too much! I don’t blame him. I find it a shame to have left free when that year, Roma were ready to put 40 M€ on me. At the time, it was a nice sum of money”.
At the end, the contract of trust was broken, as the World Champion admitted to Jérôme Rothen:
“Things went wrong. I have a great season but the year after I get injured. I stay on the flank for a year and when I come back, I have a year left on my contract. I expected support from the club at that time. With what I had done at OM, they knew what I could bring them on the pitch. When I got injured, it was time to sit around a table, sign a new contract and have them trust me. They left me alone. They let me wander. At the time, I had nevertheless recruited a physiotherapist to work with me every day at my expense. The club did not want to reimburse me. Basically, I don’t care but I consider that a player, when you want to accompany him, you have to be there in good times and in bad times. That was not done at that time. »
