Since the formalization of his loan with option to purchase on January 21, Arkadiusz Milik has discovered the madness that sometimes surrounds OM with an incredible succession of events around the club. First there was the attack on the Commandery by several hundred dissatisfied supporters against the management. Misfortunes that had caused the postponement of the match against Rennes and delayed its big debut in the Marseille jersey. Then there was the resignation of coach AndrÃ © Villas-Boas, transformed into a layoff by the club. Last thunderclap to date: the departure of Jacques-Henri Eyraud from the presidency of the club in favor of Pablo Longoria.
This climate did not destabilize the Polish striker, used to the hectic atmosphere of Naples, his former club. But the player still confided his surprise, on Canal, Sunday after the draw against OL (1-1). He also equalized on the penalty spot on his 27th birthday, to score his second goal in three games with Marseille.
“A lot of strange things have happened since I arrived, he admitted. I’m just focused on football, to be better, to be on the pitch and get back on track since I don’t haven’t played for a long time. I’m happy to score goals and play. I just can’t wait to play my game, help OM win games and I’m just focused on that . I’m focused on football, I didn’t mind that to be honest. “
In the closet in Naples in the first part of the season against a background of disagreement with his management, Milik finally wants to move on by thinking of Euro 2020 with Poland, but also of his future when he could return to Italy next summer. He will have to do it under the orders of the new coach, Jorge Sampaoli, expected this Monday in Marseille /
“To be honest I don’t know a lot about him, he admitted. I’ve heard stories but it’s too early to say anything. He has to happen first, we have to train with him and then I’ll talk. I hope he’s a good person, a good coach and that we will start to win with him. “
