Sent to the substitutes’ bench by Jorge Sampaoli this Sunday evening during the L1 match between Olympique de Marseille and Troyes, Boubacar Kamara seems increasingly close to the exit …
Boubacar Kamara has lived a complicated week, very complicated even. In the wake of a tense Olympico in Lyon, the central defender has somewhat spoiled his good first part of the season. First by making a poor performance against Galatasaray in the Europa League on Thursday (2-4). Since during the elimination of OM, the young Frenchman was at fault on the first but Turkish, while not being that reassuring in defensive duels and raises. The next day, Kamara then refused to participate in the press conference before the match against Troyes, while OM had planned his appearance in front of the media for some time now. Two facts which pushed Jorge Sampaoli to put Kamara in the list of substitutes this Sunday evening against ESTAC at the Vélodrome. A trend confirmed by Florent Germain.

“Kamara is not starting for several reasons. It’s a whole thing. Already because he skipped the pre-match press conference. But also because he was not flamboyant in the Europa League on Thursday.

A new free start, especially from Kamara, would be hard enough for OM fans to bear ”, explained the correspondent of RMC in Marseille, who knows that the future of Kamara is on everyone’s lips on the side of the Old Port.
Barça and Bayern go all out on Kamara
Again and again at the end of the contract next June, Kamara will indeed be free to sign with any European club from January 1. A situation that suits the 22-year-old, knowing that he has already refused four extension proposals in his training club. At the same time, this can be understood when we see the list of courtiers of Kamara. According to Mercato on foot, two big European clubs dream of recruiting Marseille’s number 4: FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Just that ! Also open to the idea of joining the Premier League, Kamara therefore has more of his head elsewhere than in Marseille at the moment. And it is for this reason that Sampaoli also decided to sanction him against Troyes …
