Former Super Eagles left-back Taye TaÃ¯wo has slammed Olympique Marseille president Vincent Labrune citing his poor management as reason why the club has been going backward rather than forward. The 30 year old who now plays for Finnish club Helsingin jalkapalloklubi says the clubâ€™s lack of vision in the transfer window is the reason the club lie 12th in the Ligue 1 table.
â€œI am struggling to understand how he makes a call when he signs a player. After two good games, he brings them to Marseille for â‚¬17 million. It is not possible,â€ he told So Foot.
â€œYou simply cannot let Dimitri Payet go. The same applies to AndrÃ© Ayew, Mathieu Valbuena or AndrÃ©-Pierre Gignac. It doesnâ€™t make any sense,â€ added TaÃ¯wo, who won the French Ligue 1 during his six-year spell at Marseille.
â€œThere are too many youngsters in this team. There is no safety at the back. Against Rennes, it is unbelievable. They conceded three goals in five minutes. Marseille need leaders at the back. Steve Mandanda cannot do everything.
â€œOM donâ€™t play as a team. They all move upfront. On the left they move upfront, on the right they move upfront, it doesnâ€™t work like that.â€
