Gennaro Gattuso expresses worries over AFCON in Marseille

Olympique de Marseille, ranked tenth in Ligue 1, is 11 points off the podium and has to respond.However, with the African Cup of Nations in January, things are expected to get even more problematic. Amine Harit, Ounahi, Iliman Ndiaye, Isma̯la Sarr, Pepe Gueye, Chancel Mbemba, and maybe even Bamo Meïté won’t be with OM. Gennaro Gattuso, the coach, is nervous about this time. During a press conference on Friday, November 24, the Italian made this apparent.

“It’s a pretty straightforward question; obviously we’ll need to strengthen the roster as we’ll be losing 5–6 players during the AFCON, bringing the total squad down to 18. The more competent individuals handle it subsequently, based on factors like price and other considerations. I never ask for specific names; instead, I make requests based on functional criteria. I’m focused on the game tomorrow. This Saturday, the Phocéens go to Strasbourg for the 13th day of the Ligue 1 season.
