Speaking exclusively to Canal +, ex-Marseille player and France international Florian Thauvin (30) came back on a difficult moment in his life, prior to leaving OM: “As the conversation progressed, I burst into tears, which felt good. We continued speaking, and at one point the woman told me: It is a low level, but you are already at a stage of depression.”
Thauvin’s toxic relationship with OM
Thauvin left the club, as a free agent, back in 2022 at the term of his eighth season for Les Phocéens. Following his final match for the club, against Angers, the right-winger had declared: “Frank McCourt and Pablo Longoria offered me a great deal, and I thank them for that. But I think my time here is over. OM is a beautiful club, the most beautiful club in France. But also a tiring club.”, as reported by Ligue 1.
He had then joined his ex-teammate for both club and country, André-Pierre Gignac (37), at Mexican club Tigres UANL, where he played 37 games, scoring eight goals and getting five assists. Last winter, he returned to Europe, joining Serie A side Udinese Calcio where he is playing today.
Thauvin had notably been a part of the 2018 France squad, which went all the way to win the World Cup in Russia.
