Veretout, “a top recruit for OM”


French international midfielder Jordan Veretout should sign in the next few hours at OM. A former teammate is convinced of his success with the Phocaeans.

Olympique de Marseille and AS Roma reached an agreement on Thursday for the transfer of Jordan Veretout. The former Nantes player should sign with the vice-champions of France for a period of three years (plus another option) and against an amount of 11M€. His arrival in the Olympian team did not take place under ideal conditions, but the interested party seems to have the qualities to make everyone agree and to live up to the trust placed in him by the leaders. This is what his former teammate, Cyril Théreau thinks in particular.

Veretout has several strings to his bow

Théreau expressed himself in the columns of Provence to say that Veretout has everything to succeed at the Vélodrome. “He’s a great player,” he said. I met him in Florence, the coach was Stefano Pioli and he imposed himself immediately. I was surprised that he adapted so quickly. He has a very good quality of passing, he can play in all positions in the midfield, whether as a sentry in front of the defense or as a torchbearer”. The former Nantes player should therefore offer many solutions to Igor Tudor. The Croatian technician also knows his characteristics very well for having faced him many times in Serie A.

Veretout is a versatile player, but it is also an element that gives its all without ever sparing its efforts. Théreau adds: “He runs a lot, he has a very high volume of play and a very good foot to take free kicks. He is very low on the supports, he is always in motion and he hardly ever gets hurt. And in a locker room, he’s a good guy. He’s a top recruit for OM! »
