Speaking to reporters in the mixed zone after Nîmes’ 3-1 away loss to Marseille in Ligue 1 last night, the former club’s central defender Anthony Briançon confirmed that discussions occurred with OM last summer.
“Yes, there were small contacts with Marseille… but there was nothing really concrete. I am an Avignon native, if there was something concrete, I would’ve come immediately! It is a club that I like enormously. At the time, I would come to the Vélodrome very often. It is always nice to be wanted by teams of their calibre.”
