In clear progress in recent weeks with goals in Nantes and against Brest, Gerson fell back into his shortcomings on Wednesday against Reims.

Aligned to his preferred position by Jorge Sampaoli, namely in the midfield alongside Mattéo Guendouzi and Boubacar Kamara, the Brazilian international of Olympique de Marseille does not have shines. Too slow in his decision-making, he started the match in a correct way before diving physically and completely disappearing from the traffic. A last performance in 1920 which again casts doubt on Gerson’s real level , which got a dirty mark in the columns of L’Equipe the day after OM’s draw against Reims with a 3 / 10.

Gerson invisible, Ünder in the flops “He did not start the evening so badly, in a fairly offensive role where he often found himself in the opponent’s area. There were some good intentions and willpower, but for nothing concrete when it came time to take stock, and he disappeared far too early, invisible or almost in the second half ” criticized the newspaper, which however put another OM player in the basket of the flops. This is Cengiz Ünder, who had a good first half of the season overall. But who, like Gerson, ended the year 2021 on a bad note. “Lined up on the right side, we saw him a little bit at the start of the match, but he shouldn’t have arrived late. He overflowed once (5th), then he hit (01 e), and that was about it. He spoils interesting situations, he makes the wrong choice or he misses the point: his match was quite annoying ” irritated the newspaper. As for Jorge Sampaoli, not very inspired with in particular the rather incomprehensible exit of Milik, he was not spared either by collecting a ruthless 4 / 01.
