Florian Thauvin tackles Jacques-Henri Eyraud and the former management of OM

Florian Thauvin (29) seems to flourish on the side of the Tigres de Monterrey after a difficult start. At the microphone of RMC Sports, the French international (10 caps, 1 achievement) returned to the conditions of his departure from Olympique de Marseille in the summer of 2021, at the end of his contract with the Marseille team. A situation for which the former Olympian management, embodied by Jacques-Henri Eyraud, is largely responsible according to him.

“He was the club president when I had a year left on my contract. I pushed for a long time for an extension, the president was not advancing on this subject. I think 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 was asking 80 million euros for me and it was way too much. I don’t blame him, he tried to manage in the best way possible. What I find unfortunate is that I left free when this year there is Roma who were ready to put in 40 million euros and I think that at the time it was a good sum of money for me”he said, regretting that JHE and his teams were not proactive on the subject of an extension when he was long and quite seriously injured.
