Despite the arrival of Pau Lopez to compete with Steve Mandanda, Eric Di Meco believes that OM would have done better to bet on Alban Lafont.
This summer, Olympique de Marseille had a very clear objective in the transfer market, namely to recruit a goalkeeper, not just to replace Yohann Pelé, but to come and compete with Steve Mandanda. Therefore, OM recruited Pau Lopez who landed on loan from AS Roma. However, Eric Di Meco would have preferred that the Marseille club recruit Alban Lafont.
“If you prepare the Mandanda transition, you take a young goalkeeper in the making who is very strong, like Alban Lafont. A strong guy who is already playing pro, in whom you make a small investment, because he is an important position. He is 21-22 years old, he is a future cador “, launches the OM legend to Football Club de Marseille.
