Milik plans to play the C1 Marseille

But for his part, the 28-year-old sent a clear message about his intentions during an interview with Onze Mondial Magazine.
The Champions League? That’s our goal this season, I can’t say we’re close because the standings are very tight. But that’s what we want, it’s the best competition in the world and to participate in it you have to earn it on the pitch. I want to play the Champions League with OM, Milik assured. And as we know, Marseille president Pablo Longoria, although he is always looking for offers, also wants to build his project around him.
Longoria, a real surprise for the Poles
And the former striker of Ajax Amsterdam did not hide the Spaniard’s role in his history at OM. The first time I met Pablo Longoria was in Naples, we were talking about football. He impressed me because he is very young and you don’t expect to meet a sporting director – because that was the role he had at the club at the time – so young and so knowledgeable about football. Rather, we expect a person of 40 or 50 years old with a lot of experience in the field. We talked about what he thought of me, how he saw football. Now he is the president of the club and I am very happy for himhe confided.
I saw that he had recently said good things about me in the press. Pablo Longoria believes in me a lot, I want to give everything on the pitch to restore his confidence. He is a very important person to meMilik insisted. Thriving in his life in Marseille, the striker also feels that he has been given a boost in the warm atmosphere of the Vlodrome. The Vlodrome is an incredible stadium. The most beautiful atmosphere hung against Paris, something indescribable, I had never seen such a stadium in all my life! It was something crazy. I have a very good relationship with the Marseille supporters. I think the relationship would be better if I spoke French, to be closer to them. (…) But what will ultimately help me the most is my performance on the field. If I speak French but play like shit they will never like mehe finished laughing. With 20 goals in all competitions this season, Milik wasn’t worried about his popularity score in Marseille!
