In difficulty at OM, Amine Harit is approaching a return to Schalke 04. His compatriot Mehdi Benatia brings confidences on this issue.
OM Mercato : Amine Harit in the hard at Marseille
Recruited during the last summer mercato from Schalke 04, Amine Harit has had a difficult start at Olympique of Marseille. Arrived at OM in the hope of relaunching his career in Ligue 1, the Moroccan international struggled to convince his coach Jorge Sampaoli. He has to be satisfied with a low playing time under his new colors.
These difficult moments have deeply affected the former Nantes. At least this is the revelation made by his compatriot Mehdi Benatia to the microphone of L’Équipe. “I asked him: “What have you done? The coach does not like you? Are you doing the right thing in training?” There weren’t really any reasons, really. But an alternative: either finish the season freewheeling, or wait for his time by working, “said the former Juventus defender.
Amine Harit has everything to shine at OM
Subscribed to the bench of the Olympique of Marseille during most of the season, Amine Harit does not sulk for all that his adventure at the OM. Better, he is working hard to find a place in the squad. Moreover, the 24-year-old player seems to have found his best level under the Marseille shirt in recent weeks.
The Moroccan striker was thunderous and decisive against Stade Brestois, and did it again on Sunday during the victory of OM in Saint-Etienne (2-4), by scoring the fourth goal of his team. This remarkable performance has re-launched the debate on his future. Loaned without an option to buy, the principal concerned could continue his adventure in Marseille next season. “Confidence, playing time, legs of fire, Harit has everything to flourish in the attacking framework advocated by Sampaoli,” said Mehdi Benatia. It remains to be seen whether OM will agree to keep their Moroccan striker. If not, Amine Harit could go elsewhere this summer, especially since Villarreal would consider luring him to La Liga next season.
