Olympique de Marseille midfielder Pape Guy agreed in the mixed zone to announce the absence of Bamba Deng from the group on Saturday against Lille (2-1, the seventh day of Ligue 1) after a stormy end of the transfer period.
Bamba Deng subscribers are still absent. On Saturday, the Senegalese striker was not in the group called up by Igor Teodor for the Olympique de Marseille match against Lille (2-1, the seventh day of Ligue 1), at the Orange Velodrome. After pushing the leaders towards exit during the summer transfer window, the 22-year-old has been unable to find a new base, notably the fault of his failed departure in Nice after refusing to join English club Leeds United. Recently, a Belgian formation was interested in the services of the former resident of Diambars FC, Antwerp. But the concerned director did not follow through on this suggestion.
“I hope this team finds”
Eager to continue the adventure at Bouches-du-Rhône despite the Croatian coach’s apparent attitude, reluctant to use him, Bamba Dieng is now waiting to play his first minutes of the 2022-2023 season. At least in the league since Olympique de Marseille didn’t score it in the Champions League group stage.
After the success against LOSC, one of his teammates agreed to give some news. In the mixed zone, Senegalese midfielder Pape Gueye said he hoped his compatriot would return to the group. “Bampa, he’s fine. Thanks for asking that question. He’s fine. He’s had a very complicated time. I’m very close to him. He’s solid and I hope he finds this team. He’s very important to the group and OM.” Under contract until June 2024, will Bamba Deng stand a chance? Answer during the upcoming meetings in Marseille.
