who is Salim Ben Seghir, author of his great pro debut?

Salim Ben Seghir, who arrived free from Nice last summer, played his first official game at OM against Montpellier on Sunday. The young 19-year-old player, a tonic and tough winger, is renowned for his human and technical qualities.

The general public discovered his face this Sunday at the Vรฉlodrome. More than nine months after his arrival at La Canebiรจre, Salim Ben Seghir took his first steps in an official match in the OM jersey with the victory over Montpellier (2-0, 31st day of Ligue 1). Facing MHSC, with the match folded, Jorge Sampaoli decided to launch the young 19-year-old winger in the last minutes, replacing Amine Harit. A nice reward for one of the greatest expectations of the club from Marseille.

The Saint-Tropez native was released from OGC Nice, his training club, on July 1, 2021. Making his debut with OM in the pro this Sunday, the French U19 international (three selections) would have already experienced the joys of entering Ligue 1 with the Aiglons on 29 November 2020 against Dijon. A few days later, he was also able to play a full half against Hapoel Beer-Sheva in the group stage of the Europa League.

De La Fuente’s absence until the end of the season gives him opportunities

Last summer, OM therefore set its sights on Bilal Nadir and him, his teammate at the training center in Nice. “If we get players from outside, it’s because we don’t have an equivalent in those positions at home. So it’s completely normal for them to be recruited after training,” said Nasser Larguet, the director of the OM training center a few weeks ago. , in the Scouting podcastโ€ 

Nadir still hasn’t had a chance to play in the first team, unlike Ben Seghir who, having played in the pro group many times, was able to take advantage of the absence of Milik and De La Fuente to take a break against Montpellier . The withdrawal of the American winger until the end of the season could also present new opportunities for Ben Seghir.

a “good boy”

Technical and fast winger, good free kick taker, Ben Seghir can thrive on both sides of the attack. An invigorating and small player (1.74 m), he has great percussion skills. Off the field, he is also described as an easygoing young man. “He’s a really good boy. He’s polite. It’s always good to have a kid like that in your group, he creates a good atmosphere,” concluded Emerse Faรฉ, his former U17 and U19 coach in Nice, on the site together news foot last February.

Given the extremely close home trajectory that awaits OM at the end of the season, with the European Cup and Championship, Marseille fans could continue to get to know him well.
