“He was the president of the club when I had a year left on my contract, confided “Flotov” at the microphone of Jérôme Rothen. I pushed for a long time for an extension, the president was not making progress on this subject. I think that the mistake that was made when I was coming out of my very good seasons, when I was coming out of the World Cup, was that the president asked 80 million euros for me and it was way too much. don’t blame him, he tried to manage in the best possible way. What I find unfortunate is that I left free when this year there is Roma who were ready to put 40 million euros and I think at the time it was a nice amount of money for me.”
“They left me alone”
In Rothen ignites, Thauvin also regretted the lack of support from the Marseille leaders at the time of his serious ankle injury during the 2019-2020 season, during which he only played two games between August and March.
“I think when I got injured, it was time to sit down and start a new contract, that they give me their trust and that we leave together hand in hand. There they left me alone, they left me to gamberger. So that people also know, I took a physio who came every day to work at home on my behalf. The club did not want to reimburse me, all that was at my expense. I don’t care but I think that a player if you consider him in your club, you have to accompany him in the good times but also the bad times. And that’s not what was done at that time.”
