OM: “We won’t win with a bunch of choristers”, Gattuso attacks the mentality of his players

The volcanic character of Gennaro Gattuso is gradually revealed on the Canebière side. At a press conference before the clash against Ajax Amsterdam on Thursday for the 5th day of the Europa League, the fiery Italian technician was virulent towards the mentality of his players.

Hooked by Strasbourg on Saturday in the championship (1-1), its OM also experienced internal turmoil with an altercation between Pau Lopez and Azzedine Ounahi, the first reproaching the second for his investment. “In my opinion Pau should not have apologized to Ounahi, we will not win with a bunch of choristers,” insisted Gattuso.

And the former Squadra Azzura midfielder took central defender Samuel Gigot, back from injury, as an example: “Gigot is truly a warrior, a player who does everything 100% all the time. He represents what is necessary, he says what he thinks. Pau and Samuel have that, they talk, they know how to read the game in difficult moments like Veretout and Kondogbia who have this experience, because I don't like the word leadership. [...] I like when players get angry with other players, I have no problem with that.

To stop the negative spiral, Gattuso hopes to remedy the “mental problem” which “concerns the whole team”. According to him, Marseille's problem "lies in fear, the quality of the game, poor marking, all of that at the same time." In Ligue 1, Jonathan Clauss' teammates have not won since October 8 and a success against Le Havre (3-0). Things are better in the Europa League. If successful in Amsterdam, the Olympians would at least qualify for the round of 16. They could even hope to reach the eighth directly depending on Brighton's result against AEK.
