Speaking to Late Football Club following his side’s 2-1 victory away to local rivals OGC Nice, Marseille manager André Villas-Boas was asked about the future of Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo.
“I spoke with Luiz this morning, we decided to do things this way (not to start him). He was a little preoccupied, he has an offer from Fenerbahce which is not of interest to Marseille, we have refused this offer. I think that is the problem with the window being open when the league is playing. It can affect the players and today we took that decision with Luiz to put him on the bench… He came on and put a shift in. I don’t think he will leave.”
