After suffering the wrath of his coach, Rick Karsdorp is forced to find a new club. Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille could notably try their luck.
José Mourinho never holds back his blows and can be ruthless when anger invades him. Rick Karsdorp knows this better than anyone. After a draw against Sassuolo (1-1), the 27-year-old player, guilty of a loss of ball leading to the equalization of the Greens and Blacks, had to face the merciless judgment of his coach.
“I’m sorry that the team’s efforts were betrayed by the attitude of a non-professional player. “I told him that in January he had to find a new club. An unprofessional attitude that is not fair to his teammates is what disappoints me. I saw 16 players on the pitch tonight and I liked the attitude of 15 of them. I didn’t like one and told him”said the former Real Madrid coach after the match.
Lyon and Marseille in the fight for Rick Karsdorp?
For the unfortunate Dutchman, the exit door therefore seems inevitable. Two French clubs could however take advantage of this situation. According to Corriere dello Sport, Lyon and Marseille would thus follow the file with a certain interest. The competition will still be tough since the same source specifies that Juve but also AC Milan are also in the business.
Since the start of the season, Rick Karsdorp has played 7 games as a starter with the Louve club. According to the specialized site Transfermarkt, the value of the native of Schoonhoven would be around 9 million euros. His contract with the Italian club was originally due to end in June 2025. In Lyon, the arrival of a double could do good for Malo Gusto whose future is uncertain.
