Marseille President Vincent Labrune has explained the difficulties that he encountered during this year’s summer transfer window to France Football.
“In terms of recruitment, I think we are in quite good shape, we did not miss out on many players, only the foreign players who did not want to come to France. I spent two months of my life harassing Karim Rekik. There is no Sporting Director in the world that harassed Karim, his agent, Begiristain like I did. For Montoya, we made offers even before he was on the market. You also have to understand that Marcelo does not want to call the players in terms of possible recruitment, nor does he want to give them playing time guarantees.”
