A former colleague in Mpemba warns Marseille!

Chancel Mbemba joined Olympique de Marseille in recent days. The central defender played with Henri Sevit in Newcastle … the former midfielder warns Marseille!

Olympique de Marseille has signed three central defenders and presented them to the press this week. Chancel Mbemba is one of them and caused quite a stir at a press conference. He describes himself as “shy” and says he will take his time to get back to 100% physical condition.

I think Marseille will like Mbemba because he is very strong and has a huge impact – Civit

The official Ligue 1 website has contacted former Newcastle Mbemba team-mate Henri Cevitt. The midfielder gave details of the Congolese international’s qualities…and warns Marseille: They are risking the love of the central defender!

β€œHe is a strong defender. What I love about him is that you know he will do his job. He is a reliable and successful player. He is not very tall (1.82 m), but what he manages to do in the air is impressive! To see him by my side in Newcastle, he is great at duels, despite the high level of the Premier League. I think the people of Marseille will love him because he is very solid and has a huge impact. He also has a lot of experience: he played in the Champions League with Porto, where he was also a Portuguese champion. It is clear that he played in the Premier League and became one of the pillars of his choice (64 caps). It’s a very good access to Ohm with a “player in the Champions League”. At Newcastle he was able to help with the defense aspects or even get ahead of the defence, but above all he is a central player. He is complete, even with the ball at his feet.

We had the opportunity to make the transfer as a free player, and we took the chance – Longoria

“Chanel’s smile makes me happy. It’s something I appreciate. For Chancel, it’s a success despite the difficulties. With a lot of performances in a difficult Belgian championship. Portuguese football is different from England and Belgium. He is a central defender from the old school. We had the opportunity to make the transfer as a player. “Free, we took the chance. It became an obligation to seize the opportunity if we played three times behind the bench. He plays with character and has experience and that’s important for us. We’ve improved the number of defensive players. It’s important to close such opportunities.” Pablo Longoria – Source: press conference (07/19/22)
