Marseille central midfielder Benoit Cheyrou has confirmed the termination of his contract with the club.
He had the following to say to journalist Cédric Rablat:
“My contract with Olympique de Marseille has been terminated, I am free from all engagement, I am no longer under contract with Marseille from today onwards. That is why I wanted to communicate my situation today, I couldn’t do it while the procedure was ongoing and incomplete.”
Cheyrou was recently quoted saying he wanted to go into professional paddle tennis, but time will tell if he makes the switch from one sport to another or whether he seeks out a new club.
