Present at a press conference, Jorge Sampaoli, OM coach, was asked about the first call-up to the French team of his midfielder, Boubacar Kamara, author of a very good season with the Phocaeans: “It’s true that we have a lot of players who have progressed and Boubacar has shown it too. He played in several positions, he showed a lot of desire, a lot of determination, he was always very honest, he means a lot to OM, he has enormous abilities and I am very happy that he has been selected. with the France team, it’s a fair reward.
Selected with the France team in the jersey of OM, the Marseillais could no longer be so next season since he is coming to the end of his contract. Linked to several foreign clubs, he should probably not extend with his training club and could therefore play his last match with Marseille against Strasbourg on Saturday. “If it’s his last game with us, we’ll be sad because he gave everything for us. If he leaves, the analysis of why he leaves, it’s not up to me to do it, there are these questions of contract, entourage, desires, I have no influence on these things »said the Argentine coach.
