OM: Mitroglou, Gomis is still wondering …

Baftimbi Gomis, who was not held by Olympique de Marseille in 2017, did not understand the Phocen Club’s decision. Especially to spend a lot of money on Kostas Mitroglou.

Gomis wore the OM jersey in 2016-2017

Baftimbi Gomis, loaned by Swansea in the 2016-2017 season, had a good year for Marseille by scoring 20 goals in 31 Ligue 1 games.

B. Gomis – I did not understand it

He knows very well that we have made him a very interesting offer. And he thought Galatasaray was better for him because he had a big salary, a big contract Sports Director Andoni Zubizarreta said in October 2018. I had no real desire to work with myself and only got a two-year contract , Gomis answers in the columns of Var-Matin.

Three years later, the 34-year-old striker is still amazed at OM’s strategy. I did not understand it Galatasaray bought me 2.5 million euros he emphasizes. Before we remember the price of his successor Kostas Mitroglou: Without making a comparison with him, they bought a striker for 15 million euros with a salary that must match mine.

Gomis has no regrets

We know the rest, the Greek didn’t convince Marseille at all (16 goals in 50 games). Since then he has traveled on loan, Galatasaray then to PSV Eindhoven. It was more sensible to prefer the route that led me pushes Gomis. It is difficult to prove the opposite to the native of La Seyne-sur-Mer who admits not to regret it: Especially when I see the incredible love story that I lived in Istanbul.

I would have played a season for the club of my heart and most of all it was to go with the feeling of a job well done, to leave the house clean says Gomis. After a successful season in Turkey (32 goals in 42 games), the French international has been playing in Saudi Arabia under the colors of Al-Hilal since 2018, with whom he scored 54 goals in 68 games.
