Pushed out by his coach and Pablo Longoria, Cédric Bakambu finally agreed to leave Olympique de Marseille. Direction Greece and Olympiakos for the Congolese!
This is the end of the parenthesis OM.

Unsatisfactory since his arrival on Olympian soil, Cedric Bakambu was not in the plansIgor Tudor. Indeed, the 31-year-old striker is not even registered for the Champions League and in the stands in the last match in Ligue 1 against LOSC.
Arrived during the 2021-2022 winter transfer window, Bakambu failed to show itself at the level it had in the past. With 12 appearances in the second half of last season, he will have planted only 4 goals, despite a promising start. We can still note his goal during the explosive match against Strasbourg. Match which qualified the Marseillais in the group stage of the Champions League.
With an assist in his first appearance this year, we believed in the awakening of the Phoenix. Unfortunately, the Phoenix lost its ashes and fell back into its tracks by chaining two cataclysmic appearances.
A chance for Bamba Dieng?
With the departure of Bakambuthe big winner could be the Senegalese Bamba Dieng. Indeed, this departure frees up a place in the clan of Marseille attackers. His return to collective training with the group can give him hope. Let’s hope that the Croatian coach will give him a chance to show his talent and that he will seize it with panache!
Despite everything, we wish Cédric Bakambu a good career and the success that goes with it!
