Sead Kolasinac: “Ligue 1 is a tough league.”

Speaking to the club’s official channel, Marseille’s new 28-year-old left-back Sead Kolasinac introduced himself to fans.

On his first reaction:

I am truly happy to be here. In the last two weeks, we had very good discussions with several people at the club. I am very happy and very proud to be here. I like to play the type of football that people enjoy watching.

On his aims:

My aim is to improve each day, first individually and also collectively. That is the most important thing. We have to take it match by match and try to win as much as possible. Above all, I want to help the team with my strength. I like to bring intensity and I hope that I can help the team on this point.

On the squad:

I spoke with the coach and I also spoke with several players like Mattéo (Guendouzi), William (Saliba) and Amine (Harit). I know them very well and we had good discussions in recent days.

On Ligue 1:

I watch a lot of European championships. Ligue 1 is tough league. We have to give everything each match, be at 100% otherwise it could become difficult. That’s what I’ve seen on TV.

On Marseille’s style of play:

To be honest, I watched Marseille games before even knowing they were interested in me because I was following Mattéo and Amine. I like the way in which the team plays. They produce very nice football, with a lot of intensity. That is the football I love to play myself too. Honestly, I liked what I saw.
