While the OM move to do without Gerson and Konrad de la Fuente, in selection, for Monaco, the Marseille club would do everything possible to ensure that Jorge Sampaoli has his two players on Saturday night.
In recent days, OM had made a reason for the absence of Gerson and Konrad de la Fuente for the trip to Monaco on Saturday night. Indeed, Brazil faces Peru this Friday at 2:30 am and the United States faces Honduras this Thursday at 4:30 am.
If the situation seems complicated enough for the midfielder, Provence understands that OM intends to do everything to have Konrad de la Fuente and Gerson for the trip to Monaco this Saturday evening. If OM manages to repatriate its two elements in time, it will then be up to Jorge Sampaoli to decide on a possible participation from them on Saturday night.
Too short a recovery time
However, if both players have experienced a disposition of the Argentine technician for the meeting, it seems unlikely that Gerson and Konrad de la Fuente will start. Indeed, the recovery time may be much too short between the time of the trip and the minutes contested in selection.
According to Provence, if Jorge Sampaoli decides to do without them, he could establish Luis Henrique on the left flank of the attack and align Amine Harit to support Dimitri Payet in his role of false number 9.
As far as other internationals are concerned, Jorge Sampaoli should be able to count on everyone. Indeed, Steve Mandanda and Mattéo Guendouzi did not play a single minute in the French team. William Saliba did not take part in the last meeting with the Espoirs. Although he played the entire game against the Netherlands, Cengiz Ünder should also be in the game. Finally, the Argentinian technician will also be able to count on Duje Caleta-Car who has not played a single minute under the Marseille tunic since the start of the season.

Konrad is able to take out any defender – Franek
Invited in our program last June, Franek, specialist of FC Barcelona and his Masia, we allowed us to better know the profile of Konrad de la Fuente. Hoping that Jorge Sampaoli can count on him on Saturday night …
“We had phenomena at Barça. Anyway, we know the reputation of Masia, we know that it is a very good school and that we teach players different things than in many other clubs. Obviously, as soon as there is a player who stands out, there is always a little hype. We had Mbula, Deulofeu, we had Bojans… There are a lot of players at Barça who finally flopped when it was the future I don’t know what. There is always this uncertainty with Konrad because he is a player who has mainly played in the 3rd division with Barça B. He has a lot of qualities, he has a profile that can be very interesting for OM. In terms of technical quality, it’s really very strong, he is able to eliminate any defender thanks to his speed, his percussion quality and his dribbling quality which is very good. He is very young, he is only 19 years old, he has potential and a big room for improvement. ” Franek – Source: Football Club de Marseille (06/14/2021)
