OL - OM (CDF) : A first appearance in the squad for Diomandé
Rudi Garcia had a surprise choice when revealing the names of the players who make up his group for the visit by Marseille on Wednesday evening, for the quarterfinal of the Coupe de France. The OL coach, who will cross paths with his former club on this occasion, has indeed chosen to call up the youngster Sinaly Diomandé among the nineteen players selected. The central defender arrived this season from Guidars FC, a Malian club, and the Ivorian is about to have his very first experience in the first team, takeing advantage of the absence of Marcelo, suspended for this match along with Jean Lucas.
The second-most used player in the reserves behind Pierre Kalulu, he has taken part in thirteen National 2 games, each as a starter. He has also participated in the UEFA Youth League, being a starter five times. Will we have the opportunity to see him set foot on the pitch of Groupama Stadium? We'll have the answer this Wednesday evening at the Olympico.
