Loaned by Arsenal to OM for a season without a purchase option, Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares gave his first words to the microphone of the Marseille club, like previous recruits Samuel Gigot, Isaak Touré, Chancel Mbemba, Jonathan Clauss, Luis Suarez and Rubén Blanco.
“I think the project will be good for me, the way of playing. The Champions League has given me a lot, the fans too. It was very important for me to be here. A few months ago, I received a lot of messages from supporters on Instagram and my agent told me that OM were interested in me. So today I am very excited to be part of the group.” said the 22-year-old.
“We will do everything we can in the Champions League”
And to continue: “I came here to play more regularly, to have more experience, to play in my own way and to help OM as best I can. That’s the most important thing: to bring energy and be happy with the supporters. (…) My objectives are the same as those of OM. The titles in this club are very important. We will do everything we can in the Champions League”.
Finally, Nuno Tavares quickly describes his playing style: “I like going up, making assists more than scoring. Very attacking, fast, these are the two assets that I master the most”.
