Despite a good start to 2021, Luis Henrique has not yet managed to confirm his talent this season with Olympique de Marseille.
If the Marseille club experienced a first slack before this international break in October, it is because some Marseille players did not live up to expectations. When the top scorers in the house, like Dimitri Payet, Cengiz Under or Bamba Dieng, are not present, the relay struggles to be taken by others. This is particularly the case of Luis Henrique. Not yet decisive since the start of the season, despite 150 minutes of playing time, the Brazilian is clearly lacking in confidence. For that, just remember his failed face-to-face with Bernardoni in Angers last September (0-0), during his only tenure. But this does not mean that Luis Henrique is to be forgotten. since according to The Phocaean, Jorge Sampaoli will continue to give him his chance.
“Luis Henrique will have all the luxury to reverse the trend”
“The former Botafogo is clearly chasing his certainties. Recognized for his quality of center last year, Henrique no longer shows his know-how in the matter this season. At the end either, the account is not there. What to bury the winger, especially as Bamba Dieng is now able, too, to play on the left wing? Not so fast. First, because the Brazilian is only 19 years old and the hasty conclusions, for players of this age, do not have to be. Then, because the new cycle which opens with the return of Milik could well leave more room for the wingers and centers that are Henrique and De la Fuente. Where Sampaoli was looking for depth with Dieng to accompany his false nine, the return of the Pole will undoubtedly rhyme with the return of the wingers. And given the number of matches awaiting OM before the January break, Luis Henrique will have the luxury of reversing the trend ”, can we read on the Marseille site, which hopes that the Brazilian will seize his chance in the coming weeks, just to justify his transfer of 8 million euros.
