Pol Lirola grilled in a box, his missed season is explained

Excellent last season, Pol Lirola was definitely recruited by OM. But now, the Spanish defender is hugely disappointing in Marseille…

Loaned to OM by Fiorentina in January 2021, Pol Lirola had a very good six months in Ligue 1. In the space of just a few weeks, the Spanish right-back had established himself as one of the best players of the championship in his position. High-flying performances that prompted Pablo Longoria to recruit him definitively from Fiorentina for more than 10 million euros during the summer transfer window. But against all expectations, Pol Lirola did not confirm the hopes placed in him, even being taken over as right-back by a newcomer to the position in the person of the excellent Valentin Rongier. The discomfort seems deep for Lirola in Marseille and the explanation may come from his lifestyle according to the Talk Show of the Phocaean.

Lirola, a nightclub regular?

According to the pro-OM media program, Pol Lirola’s lifestyle clearly leaves something to be desired, which perhaps explains his cataclysmic performances in the colors of Olympique de Marseille since the start of the season. . The Spanish defender, for example, would be a regular in certain nightclubs in the city of Marseille, which does not help to assume the significant physical efforts required by Jorge Sampaoli. Bad habits, not compatible in any case with the solicitations of the very high level as is the case in Marseille.

Information which, if confirmed, will not fail to infuriate the coach of OM as well as the president Pablo Longoria, the two men having brought back to Marseille a very high requirement in the work. Certainly, Pol Lirola does not seem to stick with this mentality and could therefore be sanctioned by the Marseille staff. Sportingly with a bet on the bench which will continue and why not during the next transfer window, during which Pablo Longoria could stop the costs by trying to get rid of Pol Lirola.
