In After Marseille published on Monday, journalist Florent Germain takes stock of OM attackers. For him, Bamba Dieng is the most interesting in the final sprint of the season!
Olympique de Marseille has been handicapped by injuries at the end of the season. This Sunday in Lorient, Bakambu had to give way to Dieng who made a very good start and allowed the Marseillais to win in Brittany.
I think he can start ahead of Milik — Germain
With an assist and a goal, he is the man of the match for many football observers. Florent Germain, correspondent in Marseille for RMC, appreciated the performance of the Senegalese. He goes further by saying that he is the best Marseille striker in the final sprint!

“In the match against Lorient, Bamba Dieng is the boss. Already he is not a starter, he has the strength of character to enter the match, to replace Bakambu quickly injured. He is a scorer, a decisive passer… Despite everything, he has this ability to create chances in a style that ultimately we don’t have too much at OM. A little info that we slipped into the After is that Sampaoli felt he lacked a direct style of depth and Dieng brings that. This is the bet that could have been a winner in Rotterdam if he had materialized even just one more chance. The match would have been quite different, his record in the European Cup also if he puts another goal on the three or four chances he has in the Netherlands. There for once, he offers a different profile that Milik does not have but that a 100% Bakambu could have had but we know that he is not. Bamba Dieng, I ask the question but he is perhaps OM’s best striker in this final sprint. If we have a Milik who comes back, maybe Bamba Dieng, if he has no physical problem, I think he could start ahead of Milik. » Florent Germain – Source : After Marseille (09/05/22)
