Dimitri Payet insisted on dotting the i’s. Two days before the OM-Reims match (first day of Ligue 1), the 35-year-old French international insisted on Friday that he had not been at the origin of the meeting with Pablo Longoria at the start of the week, so that the management of Igor Tudor would be considered very muscular within the Marseille locker room. “Dimitri Payet never asked to see the president. There was no meeting requested, neither from me nor from any player”, dropped the ex-Nantais at the start of the press conference , speaking of himself in the third person. “Pablo Longoria came to see us to take stock of the preparation, what he expected of us and the objectives of the season. I know that Dimitri Payet sells. We tried to destabilize us, but everything is clear internally “, he added. The group works well in any case. We work very hard. But we have the same atmosphere as last year. Everything is fine.” About the successor of Jorge Sampaoli, the Reunionese recognized the implementation of “new methods” and that the group “needed to digest this preparation which was very heavy”.Ligue 1Lacazette, follow the guide AN HOUR AGO Mon style is very different from the previous coach While his team clearly lacked ideas against AC Milan (0-2) last Sunday in a friendly, Igor Tudor tried to decipher his management. “My style is very different from the previous coach, underlined the Croatian.
