Speaking following the announcement of his transfer to Marseille on the club’s official website, French defensive midfielder Lassana Diarra admitted that it was good to be back in football.
He had the following to say:
“I am happy to be back. I think that I have some good pages to write here. I was absent for a long time, I am happy to be here. I will finally be competing again. My return to Ligue 1 happens at 30 years of age, better late than never. My aim is to enjoy myself, get a feel for football again and help Marseille. Euro 2016? We will talk about that when the time comes.”
