Little used by coach Igor Tudor, Vitinha experienced a difficult adaptation to Olympique de Marseille. But the striker recruited this winter remains calm, just like the Olympian management who does not expect to see him shine before next season.
No panic for Vitinha. Despite the low playing time granted by coach Igor Tudor, who only started him once, the Olympique de Marseille striker shows no concern. His relatives relayed his serenity to the regional daily La Provence. ” There is no problemreassured those around him on Friday. He is always focused and works hard. It’s a matter of opportunity, but it depends on the coach. He is a hard worker and talented. His time will come. »

For his part, Igor Tudor is not worried either. The Olympique de Marseille coach simply believes that the Portuguese must adapt physically. ” He’s a player I’m happy with, he’s doing a good jobcommented the Croatian at a press conference. He has to adapt to the championship, it’s a very physical championship, so it’s not easy. It takes a little time and it takes a little more. But we can count on him by the end of the championship knowing that there are still a lot of matches. »
The real Vitinha only next season?
As for the management, again, the speech is reassuring. Contacted by RMC, the Marseille club says it is serene and above all patient with Vitinha. Some internally believe that the international break can allow the winter recruit to accelerate his adaptation. But the leaders think that we will have to wait until next season to see the former Braga player show his talent in the Marseille jersey. It remains to be seen whether Olympique de Marseille had initially planned this scenario by betting 32 million euros (bonus included) on his transfer.
