Bakambu was not part of Tudor’s plans
Cédric Bakambu had arrived free in Provence. « We will have vibrated to the end during this qualifying campaign in the Champions League last season. A big thank you to all for your support and your messages during these few months », wrote the person concerned.
Igor Tudor did not count on the 31-year-old, who scored 4 goals for OM in 24 games played. For the finances of the club chaired by Pablo Longoria, this is also good news. The former Villarreal has not appeared with the Marseille jersey since August 28. He was not listed for the Champions League group stage.
Olympiacos was active during the last days of the transfer window, recruiting left-back Marcelo and Colombian attacking midfielder James Rodriguez. After four days, the Piraeus club is in third position in the Greek championship, with eight units. The team, which includes Mathieu Valbuena, is led by the Spaniard Carlos Corberán.
