This is something big. Hope everything is going well under my new colors, said the new Marseille number 13. I am African, Congolese. In Africa, OM is huge. I grew up in France, I know what Olympique de Marseille means on a national scale. »

The former Sochaux and Villarreal player said he was convinced by the words of the Argentine coach: “I want to bring my stone to the building. I hope I can score as many goals as possible, help the team achieve the goals. I spoke briefly with the coach over the phone. I immediately sensed someone very determined. That’s what I liked about his speech. I look forward to meeting him and working under him. I followed Olympique de Marseille from China. Ligue 1 is a championship followed abroad. »
