Speaking in an interview with Téléfoot, Marseille’s new #9 Dario Benedetto revealed that former club hero André-Pierre Gignac played a considerable role in his summer move from Boca Juniors to OM.
“Yes I was in contact with him. He is a player who has written himself into the history books of Tigres with a record number of goals. I must thank him because when Marseille enquired about me, he supported me… He asked if I needed advice in order to feel good in the club and in the city. The Marseille President (Eyraud) called Gignac and André-Pierre said a lot of nice things about me and I thank him for that.”
