During several mercatos, OM sought to recruit a left side to compete Jordan Amavi, in vain. This summer is finally Yuto Nagatomo joined the ranks of the Olympians to make up for this lack on the left side. If the OM were slow to find an alternative solution, the Marseille staff nevertheless tried their luck on several issues.
Thus, in an interview with Fox Sport Brasil, André Villas-Boas explained that he had tried to recruit Filipe Luis, during the summer of 2019. At 34, the Brazilian defender was playing at Atlético de Madrid. “I wanted it and I was very upset, explain Villas-Boas. When I called him to recruit him for OM, he told me it was too late, that he already had an agreement with Flamengo. “
Since then, Filipe Luis has had the heyday of Brazilian training, where he is still evolving, at more than 35 years old.
